House passes bill to ban noncitizens from voting in local DC elections

The House approved a bill Thursday, May 23, that seeks to ban non-U.S. citizens from voting in local Washington elections, once again taking aim at the capital city through legislation. H.R. 192 prohibits noncitizens from voting in D.C. Elections and repeals the Local Resident Voting Rights Amendment Act of 2022. 52 Democrats and 262 Republicans supported H.R. 192, while 143 Democrats and no GOP members opposed it. The effort to strike down the D.C. bill follows another GOP piece of legislation to bar noncitizens from voting in federal elections — despite law already on the books prohibiting that in federal elections.
