For Volunteers, Voter Registration Means Having a Voice
Tuesday was National Voter Registration Day in the US. It was a chance for volunteers to seek more Khmer-speaking voters across the country. In Long Beach, California, volunteers set up four stations to grab potential voters in hopes of improving the very low voter turnout rate of Cambodian Americans in Los Angeles County. The volunteers say Election Day, Nov. 6, is a chance for Cambodian-Americans to have their voices heard on a number of issues, and not just who will be the next US President. VOA Khmer’s Cheang Sophinarath has this report from Long Beach.
