The 2014 Asian AMerican Vote
On January 20, 2015, APIAVote-MI in partnership with the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund hosted a community presentation on the 2014 Asian American Vote, with comparative information from 11 states, including Michigan, about the Asian American vote in the Gubernatorial and Congressional elections, concerns about key issues, first-time voters, and profiles of the Asian American vote by ethnicity, nativity, party enrollment, age, and English proficiency. This exit poll reveals vital information about Asian American voting patterns that are often overlooked in mainstream voter surveys.
Below is the presentation of key findings in Michigan. The full report will be available in the coming weeks.
APIAVote-MI's success would not be possible without the talent and energy of our dedicated volunteers. Be a part of this fantastic team by volunteering today. Your time and skills helps us to continue our work toward equity and justice for the Asian American and all communities.
