SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, Fla. -

Volunteers are helping newly naturalized U.S. citizens register for the upcoming election.

Outside a naturalization ceremony in southwest Miami-Dade, volunteers had set up tents to help the newest American citizens register.

"It's easy. It's a good way," said Maria Gomez, originally from Colombia.

Steven Handshu is one of the many volunteers.

"The numbers are incredible," said Steven Handshu.

Handshu said it's important that these voters make up their own minds.

"It's non-partisan," said Handshu.

"It's my obligation. I'm a U.S. citizen," said Gomez.

"It's my right," said Guillermo Rivas.

The last day to register to vote is Tuesday.
