Johnson Votes for Election Integrity

Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Representative Dusty Johnson (R-S.D.) voted to secure the integrity of American elections by passing the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act to prevent noncitizens from voting in federal elections. The SAVE Act would require proof of U.S. citizenship when registering to vote.

“Voting is a sacred honor reserved for American citizens,” said Johnson. “Millions of illegal immigrants have crossed our border since Joe Biden took office—if they cast votes, our election system would be severely compromised. We must protect this right and protect election security. Allowing noncitizens to vote threatens both of those objectives.”

More than 45 million noncitizens reside in the United States, and nearly ten million illegal immigrants have crossed our borders since January 2021. Many states are committed to providing driver’s licenses to these individuals.

The Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act will:

  • Require an individual to provide proof of citizenship in person when registering to vote in federal elections.
  • Require states to remove non-citizens from existing voter rolls by providing access to existing federal databases.
  • Adds penalties for federal, state, and local officials who knowingly register non-citizens to vote in federal elections.

    1. Kathy Tyler at 7:32…. At issue is states that allow illegals to check “yes” on the form that asks whether they’re citizens, with no documentation. Then they vote for whomever at every level of government, even though it’s against the law. No consequences except squirrely results that always favor the Donkey Party, year after year. All other western nations make sure only their citizens vote, and that vote happens on one day. Harder to cheat that way.

    2. Well Kathy, it may be the case that it is illegal for non-citizens to vote. But at this time, they are still allowed to vote in many parts of the country (read blue) with no consequences to them or the officials allowing them to vote illegally.

  1. We have Dusty who wastes time in Washington pandering to the ultra MAGAs and a Democrat candidate for Congress who does not even answer emails regarding stances on policy. Not a good impression for future constituent services.

    Looking towards the future South Dakotans need a 3rd non-fringe more moderate party and/or Independent candidates to choose from for offices such as Congress.
