I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray that You would protect our constitution and our elections across the nation. We ask You to guard the whole voting process from attempts to change or undermine it.

A state appeals court struck down New York City’s attempt to allow illegal immigrants to vote.

From POLITICO. A state appeals court ruled that a New York City law that would allow non-citizens to vote in local elections is unconstitutional — marking a win for the Republican elected officials who sued to block it.

“We determine that this local law was enacted in violation of the New York State Constitution and Municipal Home Rule Law, and thus, must be declared null and void,” read the Wednesday ruling from Paul Wooten, an associate justice of the Appellate Division for the Second Judicial Department in New York.

Mayor Eric Adams’ administration has been defending the law and appealed a lower court’s ruling against it. …

In a 3-1 ruling, the appellate court agreed that the clause in the state constitution that “every citizen shall be entitled to vote…” refers exclusively to United States citizens. And the court ruled that a provision of state Municipal Home Rule Law requires changes to elections to be passed by voter referendum, rather than a local legislature. …

Non-citizen voting is still extremely rare in the United States, but there is a growing movement to legalize it.

Washington, D.C., overcame opposition from congressional Republicans to allow non-citizens to vote, but the city’s law has been challenged in court. A San Francisco court upheld a law in 2023 allowing certain non-citizens to vote in school board elections. And three Vermont cities, including Burlington, recently allowed legal residents to vote in local elections.
