    Approximately 350 citizens expected at January events

    TROY, Mich. Secretary of State Ruth Johnson will offer new citizens the opportunity to register to vote after two naturalization ceremonies in the Detroit area in January.

    The first event is Friday, Jan. 13 at the American Polish Cultural Center, 2975 E. Maple Road in Troy. Approximately 250 new citizens are expected to participate.

    The second event is Friday, Jan. 27 at the International Institute of Metropolitan Detroit at 111 E. Kirby. About 100 participants are expected.

    "I'm pleased to see so many people receiving their citizenship after all their hard work," Johnson said. "Now they have the opportunity to top off a wonderful experience by registering to vote. I encourage everyone to cast ballots and make their voices heard."

    As Michigan's chief election officer, Johnson will have a voter registration table on site for the convenience of the newly sworn citizens. People also may register to vote at their local clerk's office, a Secretary of State branch office or by mail.

    The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Bureau, part of the Department of Homeland Security, is conducting the ceremonies.
