Happy National Voter Registration Day!

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

Today is the first-ever National Voter Registration Day. In 2008, 6 million Americans didn’t vote because they missed a registration deadline or didn’t know how to register. Compared to all other racial/ethnic groups Asian & Pacific Islander Americans have the largest voter registration deficit.

Don’t let that be the case for the 2012 election. You can now register to vote using our website! Just meet the qualifications below and click the “Register To Vote” image below or to your left!

  • Be a United States citizen
  • Be a resident of California
  • Be at least 18 years of age
  • Not be in prison or on parole for a felony conviction
  • Not have been judged by a court to be mentally incompetent

Did you know that 1.2 million Filipinos, 35% of the Filipino population, live in California? Nearly 900,000 of our kababayan are of voting age and over a quarter live in these key counties: Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Clara, Alameda, and San Mateo. This translates into the political power to influence the outcome of elections and legislative agendas at the local, state and national level! Remember your vote isn’t just a vote for yourself. Your vote is a vote for our children, our elders, our immigrant sister and brothers – it is a vote for our community!

Please note that FAJ takes your privacy very seriously and will never share your personal information with anyone or any organization.
