TULSA, Okla. — The Admiral Twin drive-in hosted a naturalization ceremony Thursday morning.

Nearly 60 people from 24 different countries became U.S. citizens, according to the City of Tulsa.

The unconventional venue is a sign of the times and a way to stay safe during the pandemic.

"It's a weird moment," said Cing Mawi, a new U.S. citizen. "I'm also happy and excited to be a citizen and in the future, I really hope to take care of America and help the citizens and the new citizens."

The event comes just in time for Tulsa's newest citizens, ages 18 and over, to register to vote ahead of Friday's deadline for the Nov. 3 election.
