Asian American Commercial Watch: APIAVote: George Takei & John Cho – Voice Your Vote

APIAVote, which I’ve blogged about in the past, has just released online their new Public Service Announcement:

#VoiceYourVote: This year, be sure to uplift #AAPIVoices and make your voice heard by registering to vote and voting in the elections.”


starring George Takei and John Cho, both who have played Hikaru Sulu in Star Trek. I’ve had the great pleasure and honor to meet Takei. Actress Constance Wu and others also chime in as well.

Personally, I have voted in every election I recall since graduating from college in the 1990s. I did also vote in college, though it was a bigger challenge since I did study in a different state than where I was registered to vote. Now I am a permanent absentee ballot voter.

I’ve often blogged that it bothers me to no end that eligible Asian Americans are the least to register to vote (50.7%) compared to any demographic group, at least in California.

Thanks for rating this! Now tell the world how you feel - .

About John

I'm a Taiwanese-American and was born & raised in Western Massachusetts, went to college in upstate New York, worked in Connecticut, went to grad school in North Carolina and then moved out to the Bay Area in 1999 and have been living here ever since - love the weather and almost everything about the area (except the high cost of housing...)
