Letter: Schowalter’s take on illegal immigration is just wrong

Letter to the editor

Mr. Schowalter from Granby is entitled to his selective presentation of “information” about immigration. However, his assertion that “illegal immigrants vote Democratic” is categorically wrong.

Even if they can prove they are of voting age, they cannot register to vote. Here are the requirements to register and to obtain a ballot in Colorado, if one does not have a valid Colorado driver’s license. Presumably few illegal immigrants possess such a document.


It is encouraging that a very high proportion of full time Grand County residents are registered to vote, and that in the 2020 election, more than 80% of those who are registered, voted. Let us hope turnout continues to increase.

— Susan F. Newcomer, chair of the Grand County Democratic Party
