Registered voters that are US citizens currently living outside the United States can officially register to vote during the midterm elections in November.
What’s it take to become a US citizen?
You have to have been a permanent resident or lawful permanent resident of the United States for at least five years and intend to stay in the US for the duration of your five-year right to remain. You also need to meet the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services requirements to be a citizen if you were born outside the United States. There are certain requirements if you were born abroad.
And where do I apply for US citizenship?
Visit USCIS (USCIS) online or at the nearest Citizenship and Immigration Services field office. No prior service is required to apply to become a US citizen. You must be 18 years old by the time you’re sworn in to the United States.
