The Korean American community continues to be impacted by anti-immigrant sentiments and budget cuts. University tuition continues to rise, teachers and school days are being cut, and crucial services for low-income and elderly community members are being eliminated. But the Korean American community's continued civic engagement around the census, healthcare, and immigration issues has had a positive impact on our national politics. The Korean Resource Center hopes that this voter guide serves as a useful resource to help you understand the voting process and raise our community’s voice on November 6.

On Tuesday, November 6, California will vote on:

  • Statewide ballot initiatives
  • Presidential election for the President of the United States
  • One US Senator, your local US House of Representatives Congressmember, and your local California State Assembly-member and Senator.
  • Local initiatives (municipality and county)
