LWVTO Registers New Citizens
Twenty seven people from 17 nations became United States citizens at a ceremony at the Long Branch library on June 20. They were celebrated by the Long Branch High School ROTC honor guard, welcoming speeches, dignitaries, presentations, flags, flowers, and the announcement that the League of Women Voters of Ocean Township would be just outside the door to register them as new voters immediately following the proceedings. League members Sally Madden, Susan Sferas, and Dallas Grove were kept busy with new registrants.
The League members were moved by the ceremony, the earnest recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance, the singing of the National Anthem led by a student from Asbury Park High School, and the eagerness to make their first act as new citizens, signing up to exercise their right to vote!
This is the League ...
The League of Women Voters is a pre-eminent source for voter service education and has provided nonpartisan information to New Jerseyans for 90 years. As a grassroots organization the League works to build participation in the democratic process and educate the public on key community issues.
