October News: The Election is Now!

 

Election Day for U.S. overseas voters is now! You should have received your ballot by now and we hope it is already on its way back to your local election office. Deadlines to register to vote and request your ballot are starting to pass. If you still need to register or request your ballot, go to VoteFromAbroad.org today! 

  • If you have questions related to voting, please check out our website for state-specific information. We highly recommend that you also track your ballot to make sure that it arrives, especially if you have to return your ballot by postal mail.
  • Additional assistance is available by emailing [email protected]. We have volunteers that can help answer your questions or point you in the right direction to make sure your vote is successfully cast.

This past month, we held two great events, which you can watch on our YouTube channel. On September 22nd, we hosted “Shifting Tides - Reaching Asian American and Latino Voters,” an event with the Global Hispanic Caucus and the California State Team. We spoke with Kathay Feng, National Redistricting Director of Common Cause, and Rudy Espinoza, Co-chair of the California Latinx Dems about the move by Asian Americans and Latinos away from the Democratic Party. On October 12th, we spoke with Kyle Van Fleet, Strategic Communications Associate for APIAVote, about mis- and disinformation as it pertains to AAPI communities. Both of these events were very insightful and left all attendees with a lot to think about. 

With just days to go until the elections, we can still use your support. You can get involved by emailing us at [email protected] or check out these 10 things you can do now to help get out the vote. You can also make a donation to Democrats Abroad on behalf of the AAPI Caucus. Your financial support to our all-volunteer organization will help pay for phonebanking and digital ads.

Democratically yours,

Emily Lines
Chair, AAPI Caucus

Thanking Our Collaborating Organizations

As we head into what may be the most important midterm election in U.S. history, the DA AAPI Global Caucus applauds the hard work of our Democrats Abroad members and the local Democrat communities state-side for their tremendous work in getting out the vote. 

We also applaud the organizations who have collaborated with us this year in addressing and clarifying the key issues facing AAPI communities, and for their advocacy and tireless dedication in encouraging participation in the voting process. In the final stretch to the election next month, check out some of our events that you may have missed which feature experts from these important organizations, and links to these organizations with useful information related to voting.
