    Should you be allowed to vote?



    Here is a fine example of voter fraud in regards to non English speakers. Look closely at the workers. They are actually filling out other people ballots and pointing to where they should and should mark.

    In my opinion, if you cannot speak English well enough to read the ballot and understand what you are voting for.... you should not be allowed to vote.


    Be sure to WATCH BOTH videos.

    In several cities ballots are printed multi lingual. When I lived in SF ballots were printed in Chinese, Japanese Spanish and English, as were the voter's pamphlets.

    I think this is less a matter of taking advantage of immigrants, and more a matter of taking advantage of the stupid. A whole different issue, but one that does crop up from time to time.

    I thought you had to speak English in order to become a citizen and that you had to be a citizen to vote

    requiring a basic understanding of the written and spoken English language would disenfranchise millions of Democratic voters and is racist. After all, we all know Democrats don't speak or understand English.

    Ballots are usually available in many languages.

    The citizenship test is kind of a joke, and in any case you don't have to speak English in order to BE a US citizen, so...

    Why do conservatives want to disenfranchise so many people?

    Why are you such a dickhead that you don't understand actually filling out ballots for someone else (unless assisting the disabled or visually impaired in an official polling place) is illegal, and morally wrong?

    They don't, not any more than liberals do.
