Preparing for the 2020 Presidential Primaries  & General Election

Congressmen Ted Lieu, Judy Chu, and Grace Meng each gave a speech regarding their thoughts on the upcoming election at the 2018 Asian American Leadership Summit on September 6th. Ted Lieu believes that voting in the upcoming elections is important because it would bring back the core value systems that were previously held. Congresswoman Judy Chu added that voting gives the government a better idea of the public’s opinion. Thus, in order to create changes on a government level, everyone’s vote matters.
Prior to the Congressmen presenting their thoughts, panelists for the discussion involving increasing voter registration represented organizations from around the United States. Methods currently in use include first time voters being able to physically go to a registration office, which is one of the benefits for college students who don’t live at home, as well as utilizing that same demographic to bring in more people to vote.
