On September 5, 2012, Korean American Civic Empowerment held an election seminar session at the Senior Citizen Voters' Federation with the 2012 September Primary and the 2012 November General Elections as topic. The instructor was President Dong Chan Kim, and the 2012 Election Booklet compiled by KACE interns was delivered to the attendees. Information regarding voter registration, absentee ballot, voting process, and candidates from all five boroughs are included in the booklet. The booklet is organized by the position (NYS Senate or Assembly), candidates by party, and the occupations of the candidates. New York still has not sent sample ballots to voters, and only allows viewing of the sample ballots online a week before the election. There is no consideration for senior citizens who cannot access or use a computer.
To view your election district's sample ballot via the internet, visit http://us.kace.org, and click on "Poll Site Locator." For those without internet access, please visit the Korean American Civic Empowerment's office. The booklets will be distributed in Korean American senior homes as well. Since the 2012 September Primary is on September 13, please contact us as soon as possible if requesting the booklet via mail.
