Voter Outreach

OUR VOICES MATTER

The API electorate has the power to shape and influence elections throughout the country.  We are the fastest growing community based on recent Census data, and projected to double to 12.2 million eligible voters in 2040.

Representation matters, and registering to vote is the first step in civic participation.  There has been tremendous growth of API representation with now over 600 API elected officials throughout all levels of government, according to the National Asian Pacific American Political Almanac (15th ed).  Our voices matter and must reflect the priorities and needs of our communities.  APAPA works closely with county registrars and the Secretary of State to encourage more API eligible voters to register to vote. We provide information on how to register to vote and conduct voter registration drives. Community-based voter registration drives during election cycles have proved to be very effective.  In recent elections, these voter registration drives have engaged thousands of new voters to make sure their votes counted.  

Hundreds of APAPA interns across the country also reach out to their local communities every year to register new citizens to vote.  Former CA Secretary of State Debra Bowen called APAPA one of the largest voter education and registration organizations.
