Specifically, they are concerned about the provision which requires automatic voter registration when applying for a driver’s license or state identification card. If a non-citizen immigrant on a visa or green card were mistakenly registered to vote, it could result in their being permanently barred from attaining U.S. citizenship. Progressives and Democrats are in conversation about whether to address this potential loophole in the law, and if so, how best to amend it.
