I thought you had to speak, read and write in English to become a citizen of the US. If so why is the ballot in another language!
It took me a minute to realize this was bilingual too. It’s the main ballot from the City’s website:
There are apparently a few exemptions to having to be able to read, write and speak English to become a citizen:
To assist Citizens for whom English is not their first language
Oh people……wake up. There are masses of US citizens who do not speak English. For years, notices, legal papers, and now, street signs, etc., have been bilingual. It is the norm for the US now. Sad, but true.
What is so sad about it?
Sad, because I believe people who come to America should make an effort to learn the language, difficult as it is. I do understand, however, that if one gets along fine within his/her ethnic group, there may be no need to learn English. Children are the exception…thankfully they are taught English in school.
