It is interesting that this seems to be the most suppressed story in the main stream media and there is really no way of determining the reality of the situation. I did find some recent stories. Is it fear mongering or what?http://www.examiner.com/law-enforcement-in-national/voter-fraud-by-illegal-aliens-ignored-by-government-and-mediaVoter fraud by illegal aliens ignored by government and media

According to a Congressional study of voter fraud, other challenges such as identifying duplicate registrations in other states or having insufficient information to match other data sources with voter registration lists may continue to be issues. < http://www
Many government officials — mostly liberals — claim that illegal aliens voting is not a major problem, conservative activists respond that while the potential number identified may be small, an election can be decided by a few votes. In 2000, the presidential race between Democrat Al Gore and Republican George W. Bush was decided by a few hundred votes in Florida.
"While the news media perpetuated the assertion that Bush and the GOP 'stole' the election, it could very well have been illegal aliens voting in Florida that made the outcome so close," said former NYPD cop, now security firm owner, Sid Francis.
"Americans would be shocked to discover that hundreds of thousands of general election voters are illegal aliens, green-card immigrants, and criminals who've murdered, raped and robbed US citizens. And guess which political party benefits the most from their votes? The one that's pushing for amnesty and a bag full of free goodies," said Martin.http://www.topix.com/forum/news/immigration/TEN6MMVG9P96SDBM5Voter Fraud by Illegal Aliens Being Ignored Voter Fraud: Illegal alien voters ignored by Obama Justice Department
Jim Kouri - Law Enforcement Examiner - October 28th, 2010 "The U.S. Census Bureau reports that 28.2 percent of Hispanic voters in the 2008 election were immigrants," according to Steven Camarota of Center for Immigration Studies
In the midst of his whirlwind nationwide campaign to salvage Democrat control of both houses of the U.S. Congress, President Barack Obama appeared at a political event for Latinos -- including, legal and illegal aliens -- and said:
"Well, here's what we're going to do. We're going to see how well we do in this election. And I think a lot of it is going to depend on whether we still have some support, not only from Democrats but some Republicans.
"But they're going to be paying attention to this election, and if Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, 'We're gonna punish our enemies and we're gonna reward our friends
who stand with us on issues that are important to us .'
"If they don't see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election, then I think it's gonna be harder. And that's why I think it is so important that people focus on voting on November 2."It's apparent that President Obama considers Americans, who want to enforce illegal immigration laws in America, to be the enemy
. Even more revealing is the fact that with so much riding on the elections next week, Obama decided to take the time to speak to people who shouldn't be voting -- legal and illegal immigrants.
...But the dirty little secret is: There exists an enormous amount of proof that illegal aliens are being registered to vote and they're being registered as Democrats. And our political leaders know it

...Allegations of voter fraud are mostly baseless
, but they still get plenty of attention. Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett said last week that there was no proof of widespread or systematic voter fraud
. At issue, apparently, was the large number of voter registrations by Mi Familia Vota
, a national organization that encourages Latinos to vote. But the group did not submit fraudulent registration forms
— an Arizona TV station reported some requests for early voting were rejected, but only because the applicants were already registered to vote early.
Even after the election, claims of fraudulent voting by illegal immigrants could remain in play
. Some conservative politicians have promised to push for laws at the state level to require proof of citizenship to register to vote, even though a similar law was struck down in Arizona last week.http://www.frugal-cafe.com/public_html/frugal-blog/frugal-cafe-blogzone/2010/05/07/good-grief-california-dmv-employees-arrested-for-selling-fake-ids-licenses-car-titles-to-illegal-aliens/
Good Grief: California DMV Employees Arrested for Selling Fake IDs, Licenses, & Car Titles to Illegal Aliens - May 7, 2010
More nefarious nonsense from California… employees at the Department of Motor Vehicles have been arrested for selling bogus drivers licenses, identification, and vehicle titles to illegal immigrants.
Bad enough that Arizona has such a dire situation with its onslaught of illegal aliens parading across its unsecured border that it had to pass its own state law to try to stop the flood.
Now we know that California government workers have been instrumental in worsening the illegal immigration situation by selling fake IDs. And profiting from it.http://blogs.laweekly.com/ladaily/city-news/dmv-employees-arrested/
Four Southern California-based DMV employees were arrested as part of an alleged scheme to issue false driver’s licenses and titles for people, including the undocumented, who otherwise shouldn’t otherwise have them, the department announced Thursday afternoon.
The investigation involved “stolen/embezzled high-end vehicles” and issuance of false driver’s licenses and fraudulent titles, the department stated. Three of the suspects worked out of the Hope Street office in Exposition Park. Another worked in Fullerton.
DMV officials allege that the crew worked together, for example, to issue fake driver’s licenses for $350 to $6,000 each
A sixth man, 40-year-old license registration examiner Gonzalo Garcia, who worked int he Hollywood offfice, was arrested in a separate investigation. He is suspected of illegally accessing DMV computers and falsifying public records.

DMV Employee Felony Arrest Drivers License Bribes - January 14, 2010
Jamison is a 10-year employee at the Hawthorne Field California (CA) DMV Office, with the worker's arrest this morning shortly after arrival for work. Department of Motor Vehicles has been tracking its (now-former) employee during six months of internal investigation performed by DMV Internal Affairs.... The DMV worker admits to at least $200 to $300 per fraudulent transaction, while Internal Affairs' video footage and separate journals reveal Jamison's entering of false info to the DMV Database.
Jamison must, of course, remain the only DMV employee allegedly involved in taking bribes and entering false information for California driver's tests and IDs, right? Or, not quite. Focusing on identity theft and at least 13 involved ring members
, this makes the second time in a week that the California Department of Motor Vehicles has made the news-with similar circumstances. This bribery thing seems to be popular.
...U.S. Counter-terrorism investigators busted an alleged identity theft ring.
Accused members of that ring were suspected of bribing DVM workers in Inglewood
to provide fake documents. FBI, DMV and District Attorney's Office teamed up for the bust. DMV workers were allegedly providing California state driver's licenses and other documents in exchange for bribes. Whoops. Talk about wrong person, wrong time.http://www.ice.gov/news/releases/0902/090223bakersfield.htmFebruary 23, 2009DMV and ICE dismantle major Bakersfield counterfeit document ring
- Ring recruited customers outside local grocery stores
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Seven suspects face state charges after investigators from the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) executed state search warrants last week targeting a sophisticated counterfeit document ring that recruited customers at area Latino grocery stores
The enforcement action, which took place Wednesday, resulted in the seizure of a large cache of counterfeit document manufacturing equipment, such as computers, laminators, government seals and card stock, as well as nearly $13,000 in cash
. The searches were conducted at two apartments and one residence allegedly used by the defendants to produce the documents. Those documents included counterfeit false Social Security cards, driver's licenses, and Resident Alien cards, commonly known as "green cards." Personnel from the Bakersfield Police Department and Kern County Sheriff"s Office assisted with the operation.
The investigation into the document ring originated from a lead uncovered by ICE. During the ensuing three-month probe, undercover DMV investigators purchased counterfeit documents from suspects outside two Ranch Markets in Bakersfield
. Authorities say the counterfeits were of very high quality
"The security and integrity of California Driver Licenses and California Identification Cards is absolutely one of our most important mandates," said DMV Director George Valverde. "Our investigators work tirelessly to track down criminals who try in any way possible to compromise our customers' identities and security." "Counterfeit identity documents like the ones produced by this ring can be used by terrorists, criminals, essentially anyone who's seeking to mask their identities and hide their true intentions
," said Michael Toms, resident agent in charge for the ICE Office of Investigations in Bakersfield. "Given the public security implications, ICE is working closely with its local and federal law enforcement counterparts here in Kern County and around the country to target these kinds of schemes and shut them down
."The six men charged in the case, including one Salvadoran and five Mexican nationals, are all in the United States illegally.
The lone woman defendant is a U.S. citizen. The defendants face a variety of state charges, including manufacturing and distributing false immigration documents, selling forged documents, possessing a forged seal, and conspiracy. http://www.allbusiness.com/crime-law-enforcement-corrections/criminal-offenses/5025741-1.htmlDMV, FBI Investigators Break up Employee Ring of License Thieves as Result of Undercover...
Publication: Business Wire Date: Thursday, August 4 2005
SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Officials from the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) today confirmed that four employees have been arrested by DMV investigators and FBI agents and charged with creating and selling false driver licenses, identification cards and vehicle registration documents by using customer information they had access to while performing their job duties
. The arrests came as a result of a wide-ranging joint 20-month investigation that resulted in federal charges for the employees who worked at the Oakland-Claremont office
Champion said that the DMV Investigations Division and the Office of Internal Investigations have participated in more than 1600 California Driver License-related counterfeiting arrests over the past five years
, and that tighter security procedures in place in the 168 DMV offices has foiled an additional 5000 persons who were trying to steal someone else's identity by applying for a bogus replacement licenses
I realize in California if someone has a residence and a California Drivers License then he can register to vote - so how many Illegal aliens are here in california with bogus SSN's and have acquired a CDL? It must be at least in the thousands if not hundreds of thousands. I've seen the the stories of DMV worker (who got caught) getting thousands of dollars to sell CDL'S ...
