Register voters at Naturalization Ceremonies in northeast Ohio.

Registering voters at naturalization ceremonies is a moving experience. You will experience a sense of hope as prospective citizens from so many nations gather to become Americans. It is a beautiful reminder of what makes our country special and the potential that we have when immigrants choose and call the United States home.

Some interesting upcoming venues:

September 13, 2019 10 a.m. – James A. Garfield National Historic Site
September 20, 2019 10 a.m.  – Cuyahoga County Public Library-Solon Branch
