Korean American organizations are gearing up for November general elections with voter registration campaigns.

With voter registration deadline coming up on Oct. 20, Korean American Coalition, the Korean Resource Center and the National Korean American Service & Education Consortium

KAC participated in National Voter Registration Day Tuesday at Cal State Los Angeles, while the KRC and NAKASEC plan to set up at the Arirang Festival in Orange County coming Sept. 26 to 28.

The KRC offers a Campaign Fellows Program, which invites volunteers to phonebank and knock on doors to encourage more people to vote.

“In 2011, 70 percent of Koreans in Los Angeles and 78 percent in the Orange County area were registered voters,” said Kim Yong-ho, KRC coordinator. “It’s important for minorities to participate in elections to increase their voice.”

Registration forms are available at local DMV offices, county clerk and registrar offices, U.S. post offices and public libraries. A Korean-language site for online registration, www.sos.ca.gov/elections/new-voter/korean, is also available.
