Free Voter Helplines in Five Asian Languages

FREE VOTER HELPLINES IN FIVE ASIAN LANGUAGES 
Vote Center Monitoring Will Be Conducted in LA & Orange Counties 
 
LOS ANGELES, CA — (October 6, 2020) — Beginning today, October 6 through election day November 3, free helplines for voters in Los Angeles County and Orange County will be available in six languages: Chinese, English, Korean, Tagalog, Thai, and Vietnamese. Callers can receive help and clarification about the voting process such as registration, in-language resources, mail-in ballots, voting centers, and deadlines. In addition to these helplines, Asian Americans Advancing Justice Los Angeles (Advancing Justice-LA) will also be conducting vote center monitoring in collaboration with community partners in both counties. By ensuring language access, clarification and reassurance throughout the voting process, Advancing Justice-LA will help empower the diverse Asian American communities to exercise their democratic rights, and have a voice in matters that impact their quality of life and their community.  
 
Monitoring vote centers and operating helplines are both efforts to educate and support Asian Americans, the fastest-growing voter bloc of the major ethnic groups in the United States. Asian Americans are the only major racial or ethnic group in which naturalized citizens–rather than U.S. born–make up a majority of eligible voters.  
 
The Voter Helplines will be live during vote centers hours. Check AdvancingJustice-LA.org frequently for updates. 
  • 10/6 to 10/23: Callers can leave voice mail. Calls are returned within one business day. 
  • 10/24 to 10/29: 10am-7pm 
  • 10/30 to 11/2: 8am-8pm 
  • 11/3: 7am-8pm
In-language translations of the included flyer are available for download.
