To non-citizens residing in the state, Colorado has mailed out 30,000 voter registration notices.
In a Friday statement acquired by Colorado Public Radio, a representative of the Colorado Secretary of State’s office confirmed that the mailers had been issued inadvertently.
The unnamed individual stated, “The Department has become aware that approximately 30,000 EBU [Eligible But Unregistered] postcard mailers were incorrectly sent to ineligible Coloradans,”
The residents who are ineligible have Colorado driver’s licenses issued to non-citizens.
The official stated, “The office is undertaking an internal review of the incident and will take any corrective action that is warranted,”
Prior to the November midterm elections, the messages urged their recipients to register to vote.
As reported by Colorado Public Radio, the documents advised voters to “Make sure your voice is heard this November,”
The action might prompt some non-citizens to try to register to vote, either out of deliberate disobedience of the law or because they are unclear about the state’s invitation to register.
According to KUSA, state officials stated that non-citizens wouldn’t be able to register since the Colorado voter registration website wouldn’t allow such registrations.
The state even declared its intention to keep an eye on the voter registration lists to ensure that the non-citizens who received the mailings are not already registered.
