Filipinos register to vote for the first time in the midterms

LAS VEGAS, NV — As Election Day draws near, booths in every Seafood City in the valley have become a quick stop for shoppers. Many of those who have registered here this year are first-time voters participating in this year’s elections.

As Nevada’s population continues to grow, so does the diversity. Filipinos living in Nevada make up the largest group of the Asian American population.

“There’s about 150,000 Filipinos here in Nevada, but only a certain percentage are voters. That’s why it’s very important to vote, a Filipino voice.”
