In the News: This group makes up 1 out of every 6 California voters. They could swing the 2020 primary

More Asian American and Pacific Islanders are voting in California – and they have the potential to influence the outcome of the state’s 2020 primary elections, data show.

AAPI voters make up roughly one out of every six voters in California. As of Feb. 10, there were 19,978,449 registered voters in California, according to the California Secretary of State, meaning around 3 million are Asian American and Pacific Islanders.

Many of those voters remain undecided, according to data and a report from Karthick Ramakrishnan and Janelle Wong of AAPI Data, an organization that publishes demographic data and policy research on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.
