I’ve been on a mission to get people to register to vote recently. In the midst of wrapping up my mission, I read a short article on Asian American’s and voting. With a rapidly growing population, it only makes sense that more Asian Americans are heading to the polls. In fact, according to a recent LA Times article the Asian American voter turnout rate went up by 39% in last year’s presidential election. Bye bye apathy. Hello civic engagement. Naysayers of Asian Americans’ political involvement can move aside. Asian Americans are a political force to be reckoned with and we do have the power to rock the vote to make a political statement.
