My Vote, My Right Registers Voters in Nevada

The AFL-CIO’s My Vote, My Right mobilization is teaming up with community partners around the nation to make sure eligible voters are registered and to ensure that their voting rights are protected. This week in Nevada, volunteers from the Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance (APALA), unions from the Nevada State AFL-CIO and others in the Nevada New Majority Coalition fanned out across Las Vegas in registration drives in conjunction with National Voter Registration Day, Sept. 25.

At an Asian seafood market (see video above), APALA’s Gloria Caoile told Fox5 KVVU-TV:

Our main mission is to have our folks registered and vote. We want to be counted. We want every vote of our community to be counted.

Meanwhile, My Vote, My Right volunteers rallied at the Clark County Government Center (see video below). Karl Stark from the Nevada State AFL-CIO told KSNV-TV News3:

It’s not partisan. We’re not asking how you’re going to vote when you do it. We just to want to make sure that everyone who wants to vote gets to vote.
