Washington, D.C. - Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik voted in favor of the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act, legislation she cosponsored, which strengthens current law that permits only U.S. citizens to vote in federal elections. 

“Only American citizens should vote in U.S. elections. House Republicans are leading the way in protecting America’s vote and securing our ballot boxes to ensure only Americans vote in American elections,” said Congresswoman Elise Stefanik. 

Specifically, the SAVE Act would:

  • Require states to obtain proof of citizenship – in person – when registering an individual to vote.
  • Require states to remove non-citizens from existing voter rolls.
