Non-citizens can vote in San Francisco’s Board of Education elections after the city’s Department of Elections ruled to do away with citizenship requirements.  Non-citizens seeking to vote in San Francisco’s Board of Education elections must be at least 18 years old and residents of the city, and must also be parents, caregivers or legal guardians of children under 19 years old who reside in the city.  School boards determine property tax rates.  Illegal immigrants can obtain driver’s licenses, state-paid medical insurance, receive in-state college tuition, and may practice law in California.

Non-citizens can vote in San Francisco’s Board of Education elections after the city’s Department of Elections ruled Monday to do away with citizenship requirements.

Non-citizens seeking to vote in San Francisco’s Board of Education elections must be at least 18 years old and residents of the city, CBS SF Bay Area reported Monday. They must also be parents, caregivers or legal guardians of children under 19 years old who reside in the city.

Those serving time for a felony conviction, as well as those persons on parole for a felony, cannot vote in the city’s Board of Education elections. Those deemed by the court to be mentally incompetent are also barred from voting in the elections.

The new requirement comes after San Francisco voters passed local Proposition N, allowing non-citizens to vote in education elections. The proposal passed 54 percent to 46 percent and will continue taking effect until 2022, wherein the Board of Supervisors will have to decide whether to preserve or abandon the law.

Up until the 1920s, a number of states, cities and municipalities allowed non-citizens to vote in elections as long as they were residents of that city, state or municipality.

I live in Japan. I am Canadian. I have permanent residence but must renew it every few years. If I commit a crime, no renewal and it is back to Canada. Smart! I have no right to vote! Smart! This is why Japan more or less keeps its culture. Why are Canadians, Americans, and Europeans allowing their cultures to be destroyed by such foolish policies as allow illegals to vote. It is completely suicidal and irrational. I hope Mr. Griffin and his movement will be able to assist in the shift back to sanity. Thanks for all you do.
