This article examines the patterns of naturalization, voting registration, turnout, and political orientation of this minority and compares them with those of other groups. This exercise is significant for three reasons: First, the number of Cubans already living in the United States makes the analysis of their political integration important. Second, little research has been conducted on naturalization and voting patterns of recent immigrant groups; in particular no one has examined, to our knowledge, how political refugees and other immigrants compare in this respect. Third, a comparative analysis of different minorities focused on naturalization patterns and elected behavior may offer some practical guides for those interested in promoting their participation in the political process.
