You guys!! Are you registered to vote yet? You better hurry your Asian American (or otherwise) asses up! There’s a shit ton of states with voter reg deadlines this week, so you better check yours out (below) and make sure you’re registered in time to vote in a little thing called the Presidential Election That Could Determine Whether Big Bird Will Be Standing in the Bread Line Along With the Rest of Your Cuzins.
Monday October 8: Hawai’i (in-person at city/county clerk), Tennessee, and Washington (postmarked if mailed, in-person deadline is Monday Oct 29).
Tuesday October 9: Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado, District of Columbia (same-day registration available) Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Montana (if mailed; in-person Election Day registration is available), New Mexico, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Utah.

Although APIAs have the potential to swing the election in battleground states, we have the lowest voter reg rate (55%) of all races. WHAT. We need to step up our overachiever game here, folks.
Register online now and harass your friends to do the same. If you’re already registered, make a pledge to vote (and then harass your friends to do the same).
