I became a US citizen and was very excited to vote, but because I did not speak  English well I never registered or voted. When the staff of the Chelsea Voter Initiative knocked on my door to ask me if I wanted to register to vote, I gladly said yes. The Voter Initiative registered me to vote and taught me where I vote and told me when the election days were. They even drove me to the polls!  As a senior citizen, it is hard to get around.  With their help, I was able to become an active and voting member of the Chelsea community.”
