“I’m happy to report I’m in!” he wrote on his website. “Vote your conscience,” he added alongside a photo of him saluting next to a sign reading, “Democrats register to vote here.”

Young revealed in November that his history with marijuana had held up his citizenship process.

“When I recently applied for American citizenship, I passed the test. It was a conversation where I was asked many questions. I answered them truthfully and passed,” he wrote. “Recently, however, I have been told that I must do another test, due to my use of marijuana and how some people who smoke it have exhibited a problem.”

Young married Hannah, an American, in 2018. He was previously married to Pegi Young and Susan Acevedo.
