Non-Citizen Voting Discovered on Ohio Voter Rolls

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN) -- Non-citizens have been found on Ohio's voter rolls, and some cast ballots during the 2016 presidential election.

However, Secretary of State Jon Husted insists not a single non-citizen vote impacted a race or issue on the ballot. Husted's office tracked each vote to the individual precinct, which he says reinforces his confidence in the system.

"In light of the national discussion about illegal voting and non-citizen voting, we wanted to make sure that we were sharing the facts with people," Husted says. "We are holding people accountable.""There is no evidence that it is widespread or organized. What it seems to be are individual cases of people who mistakenly or intentionally registered themselves to vote using their social security number or driver's license," Husted said.

Husted says the report is done after every general election.

Eighty-two of the non-citizens found on the voter rolls actually voted, he says.
