On Wednesday,
August 11, 2010, the Korean American Voters’ Council and the outreach team for
the New Voting machines came together, with the help of the Korean American
Senior Voters’ Federation Branch of Jamaica, to demonstrate the new voting
machines to many seniors at St. Pius V Senior Apartment, located in Jamaica.

That day, the interns
of the Korean American Voters’ Council helped explain the new voting machines
with the lead of the Board of Elections member Mirang Jo, who is the main organizer
for this event. They helped to explain, in Korean, how to complete and submit
the ballots to many Korean elderly voters. They surprisingly found it easy and complete
d
the task quickly.


But, the Chinese
elderly voters did not have Chinese translations and had a difficult time
trying to understand this new voting process. That day there was Korean, Chinese,
English and even Spanish elderly voters who came to learn the new voting
process.

The interns of the
Korean American Voters’ Council even helped elderly Koreans who spoke English
with clear explanations.
