Why print ballots in other languages?

Print Article

I have wondered why our ballots are available in different languages? One requirement for voting is to be a U.S. citizen, and one requirement for citizenship is to be able to read, write and speak English (form N-400). It seems to me that providing ballots in any language other than English encourages non-citizens to believe they have citizen rights that they do not have; it also encourages officials to allow registration to those who have no right to register or vote.
