THE PRO-BUSINESS CANDIDATE:

Nearly All Of Silicon Valley's Political Dollars Are Going To Hillary Clinton (Farai Chideya, Oct 25, 2016, 538)
 

Aditya Agarwal, the newly promoted chief technology officer of Dropbox, the cloud storage company, will vote in his first U.S. election on Nov. 8. Though he's worked for U.S. tech companies for years, it hasn't been easy to stay abreast of the paperwork he needed to get visas and become a citizen.

"Over the course of being in the United States for the last 16 years, I have had an F-1 [student] visa, an OPT, a CPT," he said. "I've had, like, four H-1Bs [a visa used for high-skilled workers, often in the technology industry]. I've had, like, a green-card process that took like five or six years. I've gone through the citizenship process."

The process is "deeply personal for me," he said, speaking as a newly minted American citizen about to cast a ballot, "so I'm really excited about it."
