On October 30th, 2018, SAAPRI, as part of the South Asian Civic Engagement Coalition, engaged in efforts to change the perceptions and statistics of South Asian civic engagement by hosting its first ever South Asian Early Voting Day.
South Asians are the fastest growing demographic group in Illinois and across the country, yet among the least likely to vote. We encouraged all South Asian voters in Chicagoland to vote early and share their voting experience with us through pictures, tweets, and posts using #ChiSouthAsiansVote.
Thank you to all those who attended our event!
