Rep. Tenney Backs Bill Banning Illegals From Voting in D.C. Elections


Legislation that would ban individuals who are not U.S. citizens from voting in elections in the District of Columbia is being supported by Congresswoman Claudia Tenney.

In 2022, D.C. enacted a law allowing noncitizens who met residency and other requirements to vote in local elections. This bill repeals the D.C. law, which was enacted on February 23, 2023.

“Illegal aliens who have broken our laws to enter our country should not be able to influence our policies or choose our elected officials,” said Congresswoman Tenney. “Voting is one of the most sacred rights we have as Americans, and we must protect it at all costs. It was my privilege to support this legislation to ban illegal immigrants from voting in DC. I will continue working to safeguard our elections and ensure only American citizens have a say at the ballot box.”

Tenney cosponsored this legislation, which passed the House by a vote of 262-143.
