Hancock County -
James Akroyd went to the Hancock County Bureau of Motor Vehicles to renew his license and register to vote. When he got there, he was told they couldn't do either unless he had a copy of his original naturalization certificate.
Akroyd said information on the BMV website stated his driver license would be enough. It also states a social security card, which Akroyd had, are acceptable documents for license renewal. Akroyd then asked a BMV supervisor what he should do until he can get a copy of his certificate. Her response shocked Akroyd.
Akroyd says the incident has put a damper on his new status.
He has contacted his immigration lawyer about the matter.
