ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - Brad Raffensperger says the Georgia and U.S. Constitutions should be amended to prohibit voting by noncitizens.

He oversaw a citizenship audit of the state’s voter rolls and has announced plans to further integrate citizenship checks into the voter registration process.

The Georgia secretary of state readily acknowledges that noncitizen voting is not a problem in Georgia. But Raffensperger is nonetheless making the issue a centerpiece of his effort to win over diehard conservatives ahead of what could be a difficult bid to clinch the GOP nomination later this month for another four year term in office.
