1st Ever Statewide APIA Voter Guide!
Wednesday, October 24, 2012
That's right folks, thanks to APEN and MIV Action Fund, California has a voter guide that is formally supported by 22 Asian Pacific Islander American-serving organizations and takes positions on 9 state ballot measures. How awesome is that?!
Over 75,000 print versions of the guide are being mailed out in California in English, Chinese, Korean, Lao, Tagalog and Vietnamese. 18MR is distributing the English voter guide digitally via social media. The voter guide and collection of easily shareable images may be found on 18MR’s Facebook page.
As the fastest growing group in the state with the most APIAs in the country, our communities in California will have a profound effect on the outcomes of state measures this election. In fact, one in 10 registered voters in California is APIA!
Even if you aren't in California, we hope you’ll help support this effort to reach those 1 in 10 voters by sharing the voter guide and related media far and wide -- especially with your friends and family in Cali. For those of you who love to Tweet, have at it! And please use #APIvotesCA when sharing the voter guide and images.
Thanks for all your help and support -- now let's get out there and VOTE!
