On October 11th, Korean American Civic Empowerment (KACE) ran a voter registration drive at New York University with several civic-minded Korean American students.
Within the span of 4 hours, we assisted over 50 students register to vote for the first-time, as well as resolving over 70 inquiries on voting. Many of the inquiries were on the confusion over the address and vote-by-mail application–common questions among college students.
“Even though we all represent different student organization, it’s important that we did this as Asian American students,” said Samuel Kim one of the leading collaborators behind today’s event. Another student leader Grace Moon remarked “increasing the voter turnout rate in our community means a lot to me personally.”
With only 3 days left until the registration deadline in New York, the level of interest was higher than ever.
The registration deadline for the upcoming general election is October 14th for New York and October 18th for New Jersey. Visit KACE.org to check your voter registration status or download voter registration forms.
