I'm a permanent resident and I mistakenly registered to vote during federal elections last year at my school when a volunteer persuaded me to. I did not vote. When I found out it was a crime a few days ago, I called the county and they removed me from the polls. The voter registration card from the county states that I checked the "Are you a US citizen question". But I had no idea I did that because I didn't read the form when I signed it. If I apply for citizenship and state this and get denied, will I be placed in removal proceedings? I have a clean record, not even a parking ticket, came here at age 15 with my parents through lottery and now I'm twenty years old. My fear is not getting denied but being placed in removal proceedings.
