Polling Asian American Voters

From Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund:

The Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF), a 38-year old national civil rights organization, announced that it will dispatch over 600 attorneys, law students, and community volunteers to 14 states to document voting problems in the November 6th elections. AALDEF will also conduct a nonpartisan multilingual exit poll in 12 languages to document Asian American voting preferences, in light of the surge in newly-registered voters and expected high turnout in this Presidential election.

 "We want to ensure that all eligible Asian Americans can participate in the electoral process and have their votes counted in this critical Presidential election," said Margaret Fung, AALDEF Executive Director.

AALDEF plans to poll 10,000 Asian American voters on Election Day in 14 states with large Asian American populations: New York, Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Illinois, Texas, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, California, and Washington, D.C.
