As several bills aimed at shaping the 2020 election are set to make a landing in the Legislature this year, a set of bills aimed at ensuring non-citizens are removed from voter rolls is set up for a floor vote.
SB 230 and HB 131 would require that each county supervisor of elections enters into an agreement with the clerk of the circuit court to receive, on a monthly basis, a list of potential jurors who have identified themselves as undocumented immigrants.
Each supervisor would then have to compare the information with the voter roll. The bill also requires the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles to continue to give a similar list to the elections supervisors each month, which they already do.
The House bill will be heard for a floor vote on Thursday.
“The purpose of this bill is to assist election offices and maintain the accuracy of the official voter registration list,” said bill sponsor Rep. Amber Mariano, a Hudson Republican.
