Next week, USCIS will be conducting another Naturalization Information Session for those interested in learning about the eligibility requirements for citizenship. The session will be held at the Elizabeth Public Library in Elizabeth, New Jersey, on January 24 at 6:00pm. The bilingual meeting (English/Spanish) is expected to last one and a half hours. If you are a lawful permanent resident, this is an excellent time to explore and learn whether you are eligible to naturalize. With the upcoming Presidential election, USCIS is expecting a surge in applications. With applications only taking 3-4 months to process–at least in New Jersey–there are many permanent residents out there who may be able to vote if they start applying now.
