The interesting technical side of Illinois glitches is that they predate electronic voting machines, computers, electricity, and the very term. Illinois glitches register non-citizens, the non-resident, the non-living, and the non-corporeal to vote. But they’re just glitches.
Like the one that put JFK in the White House. And, if the Dems get their national popular vote compact, will put Illinois glitches in charge of determining all future presidents.
Illinois lawmakers are raising questions about the integrity of state elections after the secretary of state admitted hundreds of non-citizens were registered as voters, and could have cast ballots illegally in the 2018 election.
In a letter, Secretary of State Jesse White’s office said a “programming error” in a signature pad at driver services facilities led to hundreds of non-U.S. citizens accidentally being registered as voters.
The Secretary of State’s Office said the problem has been fixed Tuesday, but state lawmakers and election authorities are just beginning to raise concerns.
Don’t worry folks. It’s just one of those programming errors. You can surely trust our state not to tamper with presidential elections.
