California Civic Engagement Project Releases Policy Brief on Latino and Asian Voter Registration

August 31, 2012

California Latino and Asian voter registration rates are the focus of the first policy brief released by the California Civic Engagement.

 

The analysis shows that there has been a dramatic increase in voter registration among both groups in the past decade. It also reports that despite the almost 40 percent gain for both groups a significant gap remains between these groups compared to the state’s overall population. The voter registration gap means that these groups have proportionately less say in the electoral process compared to the general population. 

A project of the University of California Center for Regional Change, the California Civic Education Project is a new nonpartisan data repository and research initiative for the state of California.
