The Basics of Political Empowerment in the USA: Why the 2012 NaFFAA FilAm Vote (Voter Outreach Program) is Important

The 2012 NaFFAA FilVote Program is composed of the following: 1. Voter Registration; 2. Voter Education; 3. Get-Out-The-Vote; and 4. Voter Protection. All four components are critical. It is equally important to register Filipino Americans to vote as it is to make them understand the issues on the ballot. An aggressive voter registration program will increase the number of eligible Filipino American voters. Voter education will allow Filipino Americans to learn the issues that affect their everyday lives. A Get-Out-The-Vote program will encourage Filipino American voters to participate in the electoral process; and, voter protection will ensure that voters are free to exercise their choice.
