Voter Registration at Naturalization Ceremony

Subject: Naturalization Ceremony

Greetings to all

The next Naturalization Ceremony is scheduled to take place in downtown Fresno on Tuesday, 18 June. If you are hearing about this event for the first time, we are always in need of volunteers for this 10 am to noon-ish voter registration effort. We need people familiar with voter registration, or who can learn this quickly, as well as people with foreign language ability (Spanish, Hmong, Punjabi are the principal needs).

 Due to construction works, the ceremony is scheduled to take place in the Convention Center Exhibit Hall building, about 100 yards north of the current location, which is the breezeway between the Saroyan Theater and the Valdez Center.

 We should try to gather by 10 am at the site, where we’ll likely set up something similar to last month’s arrangements. Next month, I hope that we will return to the original site.

 If there are any new volunteers or people who otherwise require a training session on 1) voter registration or 2) how to approach people at the ceremony, please let me know and I can try to offer something this coming week, or on Monday.

 Thanks for your help and if you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

Naturalization Ceremony

Greetings all,


The next Naturalization Ceremony will be held on Tuesday, 23 October, in downtown Fresno (between Saroyan Theater and Valdez Center). 

As I understand it, this will be the FINAL OPPORTUNITY to ensure voter registration in time for the November general election. We will prepare a paper to hand out to the newly-registered citizens if they are interested in having their votes count in the upcoming election.

Thanks to the recent increase in volunteers, the last three ceremonies, in July and August, saw more than 100 people registered. 

I will be setting up around 9 am and people should be on site no later than 10 am, so that we can go over any last-minute details.

For planning purposes, the ceremonies for the rest of the year are scheduled for:

20 November

18 December
