More Immigrants Can Vote in US Elections
USAFIS: 2020 Elections

The 2020 presidential election in America is looking to be a close one

This election could be determined by foreign-born voters. There are more immigrants eligible to vote in this election than in over a century. The Pew Research Center reported close to ten percent of all eligible voters this year will be made up of foreign-born voters, an increase of four percent since 2000. 

The increase shows more immigrants have gained the right to vote through receiving US citizenship. The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 removed immigrant quotas by country. It allowed more to come from Africa, Latin America, and Asia. Immigrants with higher levels of education are more likely to get naturalized.

Immigrant voters in the US come from all around the world. The leading country of origin is Mexico, which accounts for 16 percent of eligible voters. The average age for foreign-born voters is 52 years, five years older than the average US-born voter. Most of them move to the US as adults and had to wait for the five-year time frame before becoming US citizens.
