Lastly, we have to consider the experiences of two actual supervisor of elections, who said there is no widespread problem of illegal immigrants registering to vote.

For those reasons, we rate this claim Mostly False.
I would have rated the Senator's comment as mostly true, but a rarity.

I posted this 2011 article to illustrate this issue has been around, and the answer is always the same, it's possible but not found to be a common problem.

The states which have investigated voter fraud have done so at great costs and with few results. As a percentage of the electorate it's like a thousandths of a percent.

If you have something proving otherwise, please post it.

Until proven what you have is an unproven fear.

I already know the conservative mind is fixated on fearful things, no need to re-prove it every day of the week.
