In order to fully participate in our democracy, Asian Americans must exercise the right to vote in local, state, and national elections. Unfortunately, racial discrimination in voting still exists. We work to eliminate discriminatory barriers to voting and to increase access to the ballot for all voters.
Making the Asian American Voice Heard
By advocating for the restoration and enforcement of the Voting Rights Act (VRA), and facilitating training, education, and advocacy around voter-related issues that affect Asian Americans like language assistance, voter suppression, and election reform, we strengthen all communities' ability to participate in the democratic process.
Advancing Justice | AAJC and APIA Vote run a hotline where voters can get answers to their questions about voting and receive assistance in nine Asian languages. Call 1-888-API-VOTE or 1-888-274-8683 for assistance. Assistance is available in English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Korean, Vietnamese, Tagalog, Urdu, Hindi, and Bengali.
Your Right. Your Vote.
