Vote This Comming Tuesday

Vote this coming Tuesday.

If every registered APA votes on that day, the national % of APA voters may just be reported as 3%. How come? Because the number of non-APA voters will drop off significantly in any off-election year. However, if we vote, then an above 2.5% participation will be reported as the historic 3%. Will that increase our political clout!

The Asian-American Village web site, perhaps the most popular commercial site designed exclusively for Asian Americans, has launched its election week series, "APAthy to Action." The title of the series is a take-off from a new book, entitled "Click on Democracy: The Internet's Power to Change Political Apathy to Civic Action."

The first article of the series is:

Clicking to Democracy

New Book on Politics Spotlights APAs' Role in
Pioneering Online Activism

by S. D. Ikeda, Asian-American Village


Vote this coming Tuesday. Thank you.
