Naturalization Ceremony

Naturalization Ceremony

The League of Women Voters is proud to offer voter registration at the Naturalization Ceremonies at the Lexington Courthouse.  

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!


Make sure that you have received Voter Registration Training prior to this event.  Email Jenn : LexLWVvoterservices@gmail.com for details.

New Member Event Kentucky Chautauqua

New Member Event Kentucky Chautauqua

The League of Women Voters of Lexington presents Kentucky Chautaugua performer Kelly Kelly Brengelman as Madeline McDowell Breckinridge in "Votes for Women!", 1872-1920. The League will be serving seasonally fresh gelato crafted by locally owned Sorella’s Gelateria! If you haven’t tasted their gelato, you don’t want to miss this delicious treat that is even creamier than ice cream!

Madeline McDowell Breckinridge — or Madge, as she preferred — was both a state and national leader of the women’s suffrage movement, and was highly instrumental in Kentucky’s ratification of the 19th Amendment, granting American women the right to vote. Born in Franklin County and raised in Lexington, Madge, the great-granddaughter of Henry Clay, was expected to dedicate her life to public service — but she surpassed every expectation. While her biggest triumph was the women’s suffrage movement, Madge was also a progressive reformer who worked tirelessly to advance the living conditions of the poor, established educational programs, changed the outlook of child welfare and juvenile rehabilitation, and promoted the need for tuberculosis research. Unafraid and unapologetic, Madge used every opportunity to reach anyone who would listen. She recited countless speeches and marched in many demonstrations, calling for "Votes for Women” — and proudly cast her ballot in the U.S. Presidential Election of 1920. (excerpt from the Kentucky Chataugua website)
