RENO, Nev. (KRNV & -- A civil rights group has identified over 30 cities, Reno included, as possible places where people may be intimidated to vote.

The Advancement Project says it will have staff and lawyers at polling places to assist people having trouble voting.

The group says a major issue in Washoe County is a lack of bilingual poll workers, as 29 of 525 workers are bilingual. The group says those workers can't serve the 25 percent of Reno's Spanish speaking population.

If they are voting, then they are citizens, and if they are citizens then they were born into a country where English is the pre-dominant (not official legally, although there is always pending legislation making it so), so that should not be a problem. Or if they were not born here, but naturalized, don't they have to meet some sort of English proficiency requirement?

They need to learn English if they want to live here.
