The story highlights the program, which helps people studying to become United States citizens.

Deb Schaffer, the citizenship program coordinator at the center, said that the desire to vote is commonly cited in election years, but other reasons for applying for citizenship include the ability to petition for a green card for family members as well as a sense of security. “They all want to say, ‘Yes, I am an American,’” she said.
