When immigrants become US citizens, they must be able to pass an English proficiency test. With that, there is no need to print ballots in anything but English.

When I first was allowed to register to vote, some 18 months AFTER I had finished my active duty military obligation, I needed to prove my literacy. This was accomplished by presenting my HS diploma. My BC and DL were presented to prove my citizenship and residence.

That is how I thought it should work.
I was(am) of Irish descent and pretty much raised around Italians and remember it was an act of ‘pride’ that they spoke English...Good friend of mine in HS lived next door to his grandparents and the ‘rule’ was No Italian in his house and the grandparents tried to refrain from speaking Italian whenever possible - when others were around...Maybe mostly just a ‘show’ but I hung around there enough to have observed that ‘rule of thumb’.
Funny how far this multicultural thing has come, although we were ‘allowed’ to hang out together it was often frowned upon to date....Never really did find out who the ‘bad guy’ was supposed to be....

Although since becoming a father of 2 girls, I came to understand that most ‘teenage boys are persona non grata’ when it comes to daughters, a tradition that I have carried on to my grandaughters...HA......
