The city of San Francisco this week began allowing non-citizens, including illegal immigrants, to register to vote in the November election for the city school board.
The effort follows the city’s passage of a 2016 ballot measure that gave the right to vote in school board elections to non-U.S. citizens over age 18 who live in San Francisco and have children under age 19, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. . . .
“This is no-brainer legislation,” Hillary Ronen, of the city’s Board of Supervisors, told the publication. “Why would we not want our parents invested in the education of their children?” . . .
But other San Francisco residents are expressing dismay with non-citizens becoming eligible to vote in certain elections.
“The reason I voted against it is that I think the right to vote is something that goes along with citizenship — and should be,” said Harmeet Dhillon, a member of the Republican National Committee.
