Can an illegal immigrant vote?
Yes and No. Voting can only be done by registering, which requires being a citizen or permanent resident with a green card. If a person is undocumented, they can not legally vote. To vote on a national level you must be a citizen. Currently (2013), legal non-citizens are allowed to vote on a local level in only a handful of municipalities but there is a push to allow it in more locations.

It isn't. There is a specialized system for legal immigration. Coming into a country without following that process is illegal.
no you have to be a legal citizen.

After being sworn in as citizens.
People from the poorest countries often believe life will be better somewhere else. So they try to leave their country to find work and seek a better life. Some apply for a vi…sa and come to the more developed countries like England, Israel, Turkey, or the United States; but others cannot afford the money for the needed documents and decide to come anyway. They feel desperate and they believe that if they cannot get to a new country the legal way, they will sneak in and try to get a job. Often, they end up in a "shadow economy," stuck in menial or dangerous jobs that the legal citizens do not want; and it turns out they have no easy way to move up or improve their situation. But in spite of this, illegal immigrants continue to try, in the belief that they will be able to somehow achieve a better life for themselves and their family. Many are caught and sent back to their former country, but others find a way to remain in the new country: as bad as being an illegal (or undocumented) immigrant may be, they feel it is better than the country they came from.
It is not illegal. A person would face prison and fines if they HELP a person in that circumstance. There is a difference between simply being indifferent and actively and kno…wingly harboring fugitives. Very few crimes have mandatory reporting laws.

In other words, I'm sure it happens as there is nothing t…o prevent them from voting. There are an estimated 180,000 illegal immigrants registered to vote in Florida alone (google it).
