AALDEF needs Election Day volunteers

To track Asian American voting patterns and ensure voters are being treated fairly, the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund conducts a non-partisan survey of Asian American voters, and monitors elections for compliance with the federal Voting Rights Act (which mandates bilingual ballots and forbids anti-Asian voter discrimination).

On November 2, 2010, AALDEF and several other Asian American groups will be monitoring the elections and conducting non-partisan voter surveys at polling sites in Asian American neighborhoods in at least ten states. Volunteers are needed to administer a multilingual voter survey in 3-hour shifts and document voting problems on Election Day. Polls are generally open from 7:00 AM to 8:00 PM.

There will be a one and a half hour training session for all volunteers. To sign up, go to
