Thousands of possible non-citizens Scott Gessler targeted are legal voters

Earlier this month, Secretary of State Scott Gessler asked nearly 4,000 registered voters to prove that they are citizens as part of an effort, he said, to prevent fraud. The results are now in and one in eight voters who showed a non-citizen document to the Division of Motor Vehicles remain ineligible. That's how Gessler's office presents its findings.

Put another way: Thousands of registered voters who received letters asking to prove their citizenship or remove themselves from voter rolls are citizens.
