As the last states prepared to vote in their presidential primaries on Tuesday, our California partners in Orange County and San Diego were hard at work at engaging voters in the weeks leading up to June 7th. The only remaining presidential primary contest is in the District of Columbia, where voters will go to the polls on June 14th.
The Orange County Asian and Pacific Islander Community Alliance (OCAPICA) spent 500 hours leading up to Tuesday's primary conducting phone banking, reaching nearly 30,000 voters, and accomplishing 3,000 pledges to vote.

We're building a new network to engage young AAPIs—and we need your help!

Young voters make up a substantial portion of the electorate, and with turnout, can directly impact elections.
