Roger had a slight brain trauma at birth that makes it difficult for him to learn. As an adult, he works hard at a job that is suited to his special needs.

Roger wanted badly to become a US citizen, so he spent months studying for the civics exam. Roger’s naturalization interview was in October, 2016. He passed the exam and background check, and his oath ceremony was scheduled for the morning of Election Day. In Illinois, we have same-day voter registration, so he was able to vote that afternoon!

I will leave it to the readers of this blog post to guess whether a special-needs immigrant got his wish on Election Day, 2016.
