The article analyzes the regulation of voting rights for non-citizens in the European multilevel architecture and in the US constitutional systems. It argues that the interaction between different state and transnational laws on electoral rights in Europe has produced a challenge of inconsistency, putting under pressures those domestic regimes endowed with a very restrictive stand vis-à-vis non-citizens voting. The article explains that comparable dynamics have taken place in the US and explores the implications of the most recent jurisprudential developments taking place in the EU.
