One of the more inspirational events the League attends are the Naturalization Ceremonies at the Courthouse. Quarterly, we witness the swearing in of approximately 50 new citizens from countries all over the world. It is exciting to watch them take their oaths with pride. Towards the end of the ceremony, members of several local organizations, including the League, are given a few moments to address the new citizens regarding their rights and responsibilities as American citizens and to wish them well in their new communities.
After the ceremony, we provide voter registration. We are able to provide online voter registration through the Secretary of State's office, and also traditional paper forms. As during all voter registration events, we also provide general information about voting, information about the League, and "Blue Sheets" so our new citizens will have the ability to easily contact all of their elected representatives. Many League members agree that the ceremony is one of their favorite activities– so many smiling faces eager to engage in democracy!
