21. Some states, presumably those which include a number of good-sized areas

where a good number of people live but are not incorporated into s city or town, allow them to form "special districts" such as fire districts an water districts with the authority to assess taxes to keep them running. I happen to live in one of each of those. Non-citizens may vote in special district elections if they own land in the district, alone or jointly. No taxation without representation, after all. But it would surprise me if someone not here legally would be allowed to vote even in these. If I were here illegally, I certainly would not try. I've read too much about ICE detention centers, razor wire, stuff like that.
