ProEnglish Investigates Multilingual Ballots
ProEnglish is investigating multilingual ballots in advance of the 2022 midterm elections.
Foreign-language ballots will be available in around 30 different states in November.
The spread of foreign language voting materials and ballots potentially opens the door to voter manipulation and election fraud.
Counties all across the USA are paying hundreds of thousands and sometimes even millions of taxpayer-funded dollars to provide multilingual ballots. There are more than 3,000 counties or county equivalents in the entire USA, and it is easy to see that there is the potential for hundreds of millions of dollars to be spent nationwide on multilingual ballots in the 2022 midterm elections, and the entire cost will be borne by already over-burdened American taxpayers.
In an era of massive government deficits at all levels, it is outrageous and fiscally irresponsible for states and counties to break the backs of American taxpayers by forcing them to pay for costly multilingual ballots. It also is very important to remember that voters who do not speak or understand English always have the option to bring interpreters with them into the voting booth.
Former Boston University President Dr. John Silber, in his 1996 testimony to Congress, stated that multilingual ballots “impose an unacceptable cost by degrading the very concept of the citizen to that of someone lost in a country whose public discourse is incomprehensible to him.”
Former United States President Theodore Roosevelt stated, “We have but one flag; we must also learn one language, and that language is English.”
