Florida immigrants register for upcoming presidential election

Every four years, Americans have the right to vote for a candidate for president that they believe best serves their views. Many natural citizens do not think twice about this privilege. However, in many countries, democracy is not practiced. Democracy is what makes our country great because it gives the rights to citizens to elect office officials.

It's a big reason that many immigrants decided that the United States is the best place for themselves and their family. With the presidential election looming, immigrants are exercising their constitutional rights and registering to vote in the upcoming election. Accord to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Florida is leading the nation in newly naturalized citizens with a spike of 54% in the past year. For many, this is their first election with citizenship status and it is within their constitutional rights as a citizen to vote for a candidate. Currently, there are over 1.9 million registered voters of Hispanic descent living in Florida.

More are sure to be added to the list with National Voter Registration Day happening this week. All soon-to-be-voters must register by the deadline, which is October 11th. Nationwide, nearly 1 million people have applied for American citizenship which is nearly a 25% increase. Everyone has a voice in this year's presidential election.

Whatever the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, many immigrants can feel good that they participated in the outcome. This election definitely has tensions running high, so many will be satisfied when a new president is named. Democracy begs it's citizens to participate in their government. Voting in a presidential election is a great way to exercise that right.
