As Filipinos in the United States, we are at a crossroads. The San Francisco Bay Area is home to nearly a quarter of the entire population of Filipino Americans in the United States. Unfortunately, according to FAJ's recent Filipino Electorate Project, it seems that only about 50% of the eligible voting population in the Bay Area's counties are registered to vote. What is interesting, however, is the high percentage of those registered to vote are naturalized citizens. Let's change that.
Filipino Electorate Data in California shows that Filipinos can make a difference especially in San Mateo and Alameda County. Sadly, Filipinos aren't registered at the levels they can be and young Filipino people are not registering to vote at the rate they could be.
