I guess you did not get my point. I wanted to say that this doesn't look
like a good system to me if everyone can just register to vote even if he is
not a citizen. Does that mean that anyone that lies and sais that he is a
citizen can vote?! In our country, for example, we don't have voter
registration at all. We have a list of all citizens and all the people on
the list can vote. But US system really looks strange to me. It looks like
government does not have a data on who is a citizen and who is not. And to
answer to your question - no, I am not into lying about whether I am a
citizen because I dont have any wish to vote on US elections.
