USCIS Approves N-400 Application for Naturalization After Applicant Accidently Registered to Vote
Our firm represented a client applying to become a United States citizen. Our client was eligible to become naturalized because she had been a lawful permanent resident of the U.S. for at least five years. We filed Form N-400 Application for Naturalization for our client. We also filed an addenda to Form N-400 explaining our client’s accidental registering to vote. When our client was renewing her driver’s license, she accidentally and unintentionally registered to vote while using the Department of Motor Vehicle computer systems. Our client had understood from the start that she could not vote because she was not a US Citizen and never actually voted. We advised our client to request that the local voter registration office remove her from the voter registration polls. The local office removed our client from the voter registration polls, confirmed our client’s removal from the voter registration polls and verified that she had never voted. Our firm organized and filed all of this information along with Form N-400. We also prepared our client for the naturalization interview. United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) took a detailed statement from our client at the interview which we attended with her and helped her provide. USCIS approved the N-400 and scheduled our client for a Naturalization Oath Ceremony. Our client attended the ceremony and officially became a United States citizen.
