No excuse not to vote

If Japanese American internee and WWII vet, Frank Tanabe, can vote on his deathbed, you can vote too. Japanese Americans were only granted the right to vote in 1952 - just 60 years ago.

Asian American and Pacific Islander voter turnout has historically been very low and our vote is often overlooked. As non-whites, we face additional obstacles to voting such as our names not being listed correctly on voter rolls, language barriers, racism, and improper requests for identification. As American citizens, it's our responsibility to vote.
