The New York Supreme Court ruled Monday in favor of a lawsuit against giving noncitizens the right to vote in local elections.

The Republican National Committee (RNC) sued New York City Mayor Eric Adams, the New York City Council and the New York City Board of Elections in January for passing a law allowing noncitizens to vote. (RELATED: Glenn Youngkin’s Budget Slashes Handouts To Illegal Migrants, Advocates)

In its decision, the New York Supreme Court said that there’s no legal authority allowing non-citizens to vote.

“There is no statutory ability for the City of New York to issue inconsistent laws permitting non-citizens to vote and exceed the authority granted to it by the New York State Constitution,” the state supreme court said in the decision.

A right ruling by the New York Supreme Court.

A right ruling by the New York Supreme Court.

As others have noted, the designations in NY state are odd.  A State Supreme Court is simply a first level trial court.

Be interesting to see what happens on appeal.
