Easiest Way to Register & Vote. SAVE!

For US citizens only! If you are a citizen and have NOT
registered to vote, or have moved to a new address, then
read on. Otherwise, this email doesn't concern you.

Empower yourself! Be a voter. Here is the EASIEST WAY to register
to vote! Time required? 10 minutes.

Click on . you'll be on page 1.
Go to the map and click on your state. That leads you to page 2.

On page 2, fill out the form. Check the 3 square boxes on top and fill in
required info next to blanks with a red *. For "Choice of Party," we suggest
that you choose Republican, or Independent or Democrat. When you get
to "ID Number," click on the (instructions) immediately below "ID Number"
to know what to fill in. After you have filled in the required information, go
to the bottom of the page to click on the "Preview My Voter Registration."

On page 3, you proofread the information, then click on "Download Form" -
my registration application at the bottom of the page.

Print out the first 3 of the 4 pages. P 1 has instructions which you need
BEFORE you MAIL the registration form in. P 2 is the form you've just filled
out which has to be SIGNED & DATED. P 3 has the address you need to
send your application in.

Upon receiving your application, your state will mail you a" voter
registration card." YOU NEED TO FILL THAT OUT AND MAIL IT IN. Only
then are you registered.
Note that registering to vote is ALWAYS A TWO-
STEP PROCESS, whether you register via a website 
or go to a
registration place in person.

GO TO: NOW! Take 10 minutes
only!!! Be a voter for your children's and grand-children's sake.

When the "Voter Registration Card" comes,
you may want to choose to vote by absentee PERMANENTLY. That is you
can VOTE BY MAIL instead of going to a polling place. In many states,
including CA, no excuse is required. It is again the easiest way!!!

Most states allow it. About 20 days before Nov. 2, you will receive a ballot
on which you may check whom to vote for. Put the ballot in an envelope,
sign on the back side of the envelop, mail it and you will have voted. You will
have fulfilled you sacred duty as a citizen, and AS AN EDUCATED

SAVE this e-mail & forward it to your relatives & friends. Thank you.

Respectfully yours,.

S. B. Woo, President, 80-20 Educational Foundation, Inc.

PS Did it take you more than 10 minutes? Just give me a "yes" or "no" at . Thanks.

Opportunities Lost by AsAms

This e-newsletter affects Asian Ams. nationwide!

Opportunities Lost by AsAms !

Please read and internalize. Our becoming first class citizens
depend on YOUR understanding of their implications!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

2008 CA general election statistics*:

Number of CA voters in 2008 presidential election: 13.7 million
Number of CA Asian American voters in 2008: 1.1 million

2010 CA primary election statistics**

Number of voters in 2010 Rep. primary: 1.6 million
No. of votes for Fiorina, winner, US Senate GOP primary: 0.9 million
Number of voters in 2010 Dem. primary: 1.6 million
No. of votes for Harris, winner, Attorney General: 0.55 million

Note: Only 3.2 million CA voters voted in yesterday's primary, i.e. only 1
out of every 4 persons
who voted in the 2008 general election
bothered to vote in the 2010 primary -- a common pattern
throughout USA. Yesterday, was when AsAms in CA could have been
political kingmakers, Opportunities Lost!

Seize the Next Opportunity !

Irish, Polish, Italian and Jewish immigrants gained their first class
citizenship through the POLITICAL PROCESS! What? Translate that please!
Be of sufficient influence in elections so that politicians will share your
rightful concerns.

How? Through California's primary elections.

Why? Because we have the highest % of voters in CA, & because
only 1 out of 4 other voters bother to vote, so we'll have
sufficient influence in primary elections if all AsAms vote &
vote in a bloc.

Do you have empirical facts to back up your proposal?
Yes. 80-20 secured Pres. Obama's extremely significant
commitments to the Asian Am. community through the 2008
presidential primary in CA.

OK, I'm with you now. Does that mean we don't pay attention
to all other elections?

No. CA primaries will be the most cost-effective. But other elections are
still important. Examples are CA's next gubernatorial and US senate
elections, and all other Congressional elections which are very closely
contested where our bloc vote can play the deciding role.

Do you see a connection between your own interests & US elections?
