I do not understand how people who are not US citizens can legitimately vote.
It is absurd .

They can't LEGITIMATELY vote. But our system is such a sham, they DO vote.

They cannot. Many Hispanic American citizens, though, have sympathies for Hispanic illegal aliens. It is their votes that Obama is trying to buy with this promise. Hopefully Hispanics remember what Obama's promises are really worth, and a lot of other voters react badly to this sort of naked pandering at the expense of our nation.

Illegals cannot vote legally. I think we all agree on that.

Voter fraud by illegals is an entirely different subject. How many illegals actually vote illegally and get away with it, and if there is enough of that going on to have any effect on election outcomes is a matter of debate.

Right. Polls in many places do not require photo ID. In Maryland, under most circumstances we CANNOT ask for ID. This is state law. You could walk into my polling place and tell the check-in judge that you are Fred Mertz and you live at 17 Cherry Lane, Apt. 394, Laurel, MD. The check-in looks in the poll book and sure enough, there is a Fred Mertz at that address. Hey presto, you can vote, "Fred".

State law provides for independent "challengers" who are allowed to challenge a person's identity. In that case a voter must produce ID. But there has never been one in my polling place and with 3.5 million voters registered in this one small state, it's ridiculous to assume that enough challengers could be mustered to know everyone who votes.
