The Department of Motor Vehicles in California has admitted that they accidentally registered people to vote who they should not have, including non-citizens. This is one of the many reasons Conservatives believe we should have voter ID.

California DMV Finds Another 1,500 People It Wrongly Registered to Vote, Among Them Non-Citizen
At least one non-citizen and perhaps many more were improperly registered to vote in California by the Department of Motor Vehicles, prompting the secretary of state to demand a new investigation of the embattled agency Monday.
The DMV said about 1,500 people may have been incorrectly registered between April 23 and Sept. 25 because of a “processing error.” That includes legal residents who are not citizens, although the DMV says none of the people mistakenly registered are people living in the country illegally.
One Canadian national who’s lived in the U.S. 31 years told the Los Angeles Times that he knew it was a mistake when he was told he was newly registered to vote.
“When I saw that card, I just threw it out,” Randall Marquis said. “I know I’m not going to vote. I’m not allowed to vote, it’s stupid that I should be registered to vote.”
Incorrect registrations will be canceled by the secretary of state, DMV spokeswoman Jessica Gonzalez said.
In a close election, the decision can be made by a hundred votes. This is a huge problem.
