Do illegal alien votes matter?

The Washington Post reports on a study that quantifies how often non-citizens vote, and arrives at the figure of approximately 6% (per election). That sounds fine until you realize that, first, they aren't allowed to vote, and second, that leads to an estimate of 1.4 million illegal votes in 2008. And when 80% vote for Democrats, that swings elections.

And while voter ids laws help reduce that by about 25%, they aren't in place everywhere, and they don't stop it completely.
