American Government Rights and Responsibilities

What do you need to be a US Citizen to Do?

There are many rights and responsibilities as a citizen in a democratic country, for example you need to remain informed and vote. The immigration test is centered around these two answers though, which differentiate between the responsibilities of a citizen and those of a resident.

A US Citizen should / can:

  1. Serve on a jury
  2. Vote in a federal election

As the Federal courts site says, jury service is one of the most important civic duties you can perform.
