Does the U.S. recognize dual citizenship?

Asked over 1 year ago - Miami, FL

I was born in Venezuela and was brought to U.S. by my mother when I was 11 years old. I am now a citizen of the U.S. and also a Veteran of the U.S. Navy. Eventhough, I am a citizen of the U.S., am I still considered a Venezuelan Citizen, and if so, am I allowed to vote in the Venezuelan Elections?
