I voted as a permanent resident in 2010.
I did not know i was not allowed to vote.
when i got my driving licence they asked me if i wanted to register to vote.
And i just told him okay, i even showed him my permanent resident card.
When i went in for voting i brought my permanent resident card and showed them the card as well my driving licence ,nobody did say anything i was not allowed to vote,they told me it was fine and i could vote.
now i just got my new permanent resident card for the next 10 years.
but i'am thinking to become a us citezin now.and started reading into it.
And found out you not allowed to vote or even register for it.
Should i apply now for citezinship or just leave it as being a permanent resident ?
i'm really confused and worried about everything , I always try to do everything following the rules but this suprised me.
I just dont understand that someone is able to register to vote and vote if they not allowed to.
I'm married to an us citizin in 2008 and did everything by the rules for coming up here i work pay taxes everything.
can someone give some advice
