To quote Sen. Padilla, “As a nation of immigrants, we have a responsibility to make this process as easy as possible for newly naturalized citizens by actively helping them complete and return their voter registration forms.”  Jessica Jones Capparell, Director of Government Affairs at the LWVUS, said, “The League is pleased to support this legislation that will ensure that USCIS can provide new citizens with the opportunity to register to vote at naturalization ceremonies, thus helping new citizens fully realize the responsibilities of citizenship.”
