The constitution clearly lays out who can and cannot vote. There is a reason for citizenship. If you want to be part of that process that might bring change to your community, then become a citizen, otherwise you can express your views to those that represent you, but you don't have the right to vote for those people. It's simple enough.
Citizenship needs to be a prerequisite to voting. It is otherwise an obvious way to garner votes.
This proposal is indefensable. Those proposing it should be spanked, then put on a probationary list whereby any further efforts to circumvent or basic civil code and self determination results in immediate and summarry removal from office.
