I noticed that I do not see a political category and I do have a political question. I am going to go ahead. It is the law that inorder to vote an American has to prove citizenship. How does the average Black African American or I should say how does the native Black American prove citizen if he or she intends to vote in the upcoming election?
Thank you for your question.

The Constitution and its Amendments grant citizens the right to vote. "All persons born or naturalized" "are citizens" of the U.S. and the state where they reside pursuant to the 14th Amendment.

In order to vote, a citizen must first register. The registration process generally requires proof of your drivers license or social security to prove citizenship. You also must sign the application thereby affirming your status as a citizen.

To the extent that there are no living slaves, the issue of their citizenship is not relevant in this upcoming election. All people born in the U.S. are citizens of the U.S. for purposes of the right to vote.

OK. I accept that all citizens have the right to vote, why do they have to prove it and how do they prove at the election boot? Come November I know this rule will be greatly scrutinized.

I asked about the sky and the earth as real estate please send the answer again. I need to read more.

A person proves their citizenship at the time of registering to vote. There is no need to prove citizenship at the polls, only identity. If a person is not registered, he cannot cast a vote.
