Election Reflections from SEARAC’s Field Staff
This article originally appeared on the SEARAC blog.
We asked SEARAC’s Field Team staff to share their reflections on the 2020 election cycle, especially as compared to the 2016 US presidential elections. Early insights from the November 2020 elections show increased AAPI voter turnout, which we know is due to the hard work of organizers and organizations encouraging our communities to get out the vote. While both election cycles have been grueling, we know that the work being done by those in the field is establishing an engaged and active AAPI electorate that will impact our nation for years to come.
