Stacey Abrams: ‘I Wouldn’t Oppose’ Non-Citizens Voting in Local Elections

Former Georgia candidate for Governor, Stacey Abrams (D), said in an interview that she would not oppose voting rights for non-citizens in local elections.

Abrams was featured on PBS’s Firing Line on Friday night where she was asked about her view on some municipalities, like San Francisco, making it legal for non-citizens to vote in their elections.

Abrams said that she was neither for nor against non-citizens voting in local elections but she would not oppose it.

Watch her remarks below:

MARGARET HOOVER: What is your view about some municipalities, like San Francisco, who have decided that it’s okay for some non-citizens to vote in local elections?

STACEY ABRAMS: I think there’s a difference between municipal and state and federal.
Part of municipality — I’m not arguing for it or against it, but I will say, having been deputy city attorney, there’s a very — the granularity of what cities decide is so specific, as to, I think, allow for people to be participants in the process without it somehow undermining our larger democratic ethic that says that you should be a citizen to be a part of the conversation.

MARGARET HOOVER: So, in some cases, you would be supportive of non-citizens voting?

STACEY ABRAMS: I wouldn’t be a… I wouldn’t oppose it.

Abrams lost the 2018 election for Governor in Georgia for which she blames “voter suppression.” It’s just too far fetched for her to believe citizens in the state would vote for Republican Brian Kemp.

Abrams says that the election was “stolen from Georgians” and she would like to see mail-in voting as a “national standard,” despite its vulnerabilities to fraud.

As far as the 2020 election, Abrams says that she will be making a decision soon as to whether or not she’ll be running for a seat in the U.S. Senate.
