All U.S. citizens are entitled to the right to vote. It doesn’t matter if you were born here or if you’ve just recently become a naturalized citizen, it is important to take part in the presidential elections and exercise your democratic right. Your vote can affect change and make a difference in your future and the future of coming generations. This nation was founded by immigrants for immigrants who sought freedom and came here to grow and prosper. Your vote has the power to influence the course of history and possibly open new doors for immigrants seeking their American dream. You have as much influence as any other U.S. citizen so why not let your voice be heard?
