Biden admin launches push to expand voter registration at citizenship ceremonies
The Biden administration is launching a nationwide effort to increase voter registration at citizenship ceremonies, in an effort to boost the participation of newly-naturalized citizens in US elections. Under the new initiative, the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will provide voter registration materials and assistance to newly-naturalized citizens at ceremonies across the nation. The agency will also provide online voter registration and information about voter rights and requirements. The initiative is part of the Biden administration’s broader effort to modernize and strengthen the nation’s voting systems.
