Asian American Vote Could Swing Tight Elections

Posted: Oct 16, 2012

The Asian Pacific American Legal Center (APALC) determined that more Asian Americans are voting  than ever before.

In a paper entitled Asian Americans at the Ballot Box: The 2008 General Elections in Los Angeles County, APALC said that the number of Asian Americans voting in the elections climbed steadily in the past 10 years. In Los Angeles County alone, a record total of 283,000 Asian Americans cast their votes in the 2008 elections.

In an election that might turn out to be a tight race to the finish, different ethnic voter groups, like  Asian American Pacific Islanders (AAPI), might just swing the tide and win the presidential seat for either President Barack Obama or Republican nominee Mitt Romney.

An increase in efforts to reach out to these AAPI groups could prove to be the shot in the arm that would power either candidate to victory, come November. Read more here.
