Elected Offices Open to Naturalized U.S. Citizens

In general, naturalized citizens can run for any elected position except that of President and Vice President. Currently, naturalized citizens can be found at every level of government, in each of its three branches. Immigrants bring their skills, education, and unique perspective to elected offices such as:

  • City Council
  • Mayor
  • Commissioner
  • Governor
  • State Representative and State Senator
  • U.S. Representative and U.S. Senator
  • District Attorney
  • Judge

Running for office can be a stressful process for naturalized and native-born citizens alike, but naturalized candidates may face the additional requirement of producing their immigration documents when submitting their name for a ballot. If you need to provide evidence of your naturalized status for the purpose of a political campaign, an attorney may be able to assist you.
