Immigration has been a big issue this election season, but some naturalized citizens voted for the very first time.

Rasul Poplar told ABC2 she'd like a woman to rule the country.

"As me, being a woman, I think let's give a woman and chance and see what she can do," she said. 

Poplar said the negativity hasn't affected her this election season, but she hopes all women get out and cast their vote.

A naturalized U.S. citizen has the same voting privileges as a natural-born citizen.
