Thousands of eligible Asian American voters in seven crucial swing states could define the course of the 2020 election if they utilize the same-day voter registration options available to them.

The Research group New American Economy found that there were almost 305,000 currently unregistered Asian Americans living across the seven states in question.

The study found that because seven out of 13 swing states have same-day registration, Asian immigrants and other potential voters of color in those areas would have an outsize influence on the outcome of the Nov.

New American Economy defined the swing states with same-day registration available as Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina and Wisconsin.

Lim notes that much of the growth in the Asian American population in Nevada in particular comes from the Filipino American community and that engaging that group would be critical in order to successfully boost voter registration numbers on Election Day.

While demographically different, the need to build trust and create a culture of voting is also key to tapping into the power of unregistered Asian Americans in the Midwestern swing states of Iowa, Michigan and Minnesota.

While the South’s Asian American communities are often overlooked by campaigns, recent polls have shown that these voters can make a difference in North Carolina, which allows same day registration

While there have been efforts to make communities more aware of same-day registration in the states it is available, “people may not know or might think it's difficult,” he said
