Marc Elias: NY Efforts to Prevent Non-Citizens from Voting are Anti-Democratic

'We will fight, using every legal means necessary, to prevent this legislation from becoming law... '

Marc Elias, partisan hack and New York lawyer, claimed in a tweet that any attempt to restrict anyone from voting anywhere is an expression of anti-democratic sentiment.

Elias warmed up his Twitter audience early in the day, promising an exclusive list of states with the most “pro-democracy” potential.

“At noon today, I will release my updated list of states to watch for new voting rights, redistricting, and pro-democracy litigation,” he wrote.

His list, published later, included Arizona, Georgia, New York, New Hampshire, Arkansas, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Michigan, and Kentucky, in that order.

In full agreement with Elias is New York Mayor Eric Adams.

Though Adams was skeptical of non-citizens voting before he was elected, he now believes it is the democratic thing to do.

“While I initially had some concerns about one aspect of the bill, I had a productive dialogue with my colleagues in government that put those concerns at ease,” Adams said of NYC’s legislation that will allow about 800,000 non-citizens to vote in local elections.

“I believe allowing the legislation to be enacted is by far the best choice,” Adams said, “and look forward to bringing millions more into the democratic process.”

Anyone who can prove that they have been in the city for at least 30 days would be made eligible to vote for Mayor and city council.

The New York State Republican Party did what the Republican party does best, vowing to fight the legislation.

“We will fight, using every legal means necessary, to prevent this legislation from becoming law. Stay tuned for further announcements about our legal action,” Nick Langworthy, chair of the state’s Republican party said in a statement.
