(ATLANTA, GA) – On Tuesday, October 4th, Secretary of State Brian Kemp unveiled the first of four new video tutorials in-language on voter registration, absentee voting by mail, advance in-person voting, and Election Day voting.

Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Atlanta and GALEO applaud Secretary of State Brian Kemp for translating online voter registration tutorials in Hindi, Korean, Mandarin, Spanish, and Vietnamese. With only six days left until the voter registration deadline, we appreciate Secretary Kemp’s effort to close the language barrier gap and to outreach to citizens who are Limited English Proficient.

We hope this is the beginning of the Secretary of State’s Office offering more in-language voter education materials and continue to support Asian Americans, Latinos, and all People of Color as we carry on our fight for full access to participation in American Democracy
