We are exactly 1 week away from the 2020 Presidential Election and South Asian Americans around the country are organizing to #GetOutTheVote. More than 60 million people have already cast their ballots for the 2020 Election.
With nearly 2.5 million eligible South Asian voters, the South Asian American diaspora is among the most rapidly growing communities in the U.S. It’s absolutely essential we exercise our political rights.
If you are eligible and registered to vote we want to make sure that you have all the tools and information you need to cast your ballot on or before Tuesday November 3rd.
