My wife who hadn't passed her citizenship test yet, was still a citizen of Thailand then. She went to renew her drivers licence and was asked if she wanted to register to vote. Not understanding the question and coming from a country where you usually do not say no to the police, she said yes. Now here she is registered to vote and not even a citizen. She never voted, but she could have. She is now a U.S. citizen and still doesn't vote.
