Advocates say Asian, Muslim voter turnout still a work in progress
by Pamela Constable
Despite a big push by advocacy groups, turnout among Asian American and Muslim American voters remained typically low in last week's Virginia presidential primaries, activists said. Now, the focus turns to November.
Flurries of phone banking, community events and social media messages in a variety of languages drew some first-time primary voters and elicited better-informed responses from older immigrants than in the past, according to those who work with Asian Americans and Muslim American groups.
But the efforts also misfired at times, and those behind them are vowing to do better in November's general election.
