We Got Out the Vote!

This just in...

According to exit polling result just released by the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund and reported by APIA Vote, Asian Americans did get out and vote in the last election and made a showing of growing political clout.

In the survey, nearly 1/3 of Asian American voters were voting for the first time. Four out of 5 were foreign born citizens. One out of 3 had limited English proficiency. And Asian Americans interviewed shared common political interests across sub-ethnic lines.

Thanks for all our partners for their efforts to mobilize our community and make a difference! CISC continues to work on voter education and helping individuals become citizens so they can make their voices heard.
