Where can AAPI voters have maximum impact in 2018?

AAPI Data identifies key house races where AAPIs can make a difference.



Your vote counts. Every vote counts. But in some of the most competitive races, our community's vote could actually help tip the balance. With midterm elections quickly approaching, AAPI Data took a look at the numbers and identified the areas where Asian American and Pacific Islander voters can have maximum impact in 2018.

So where can Asian American and Pacific Islander voters have maximum impact in 2018? To answer that question, we use the Cook Political Report rankings of House races, and focus on districts where AAPIs represent at least 5 percent of eligible voters—adult U.S. citizens, often referred to as the Citizen Voting Age Population, or CVAP).

Using the Cook House ratings of battleground districts as of September 12, 2018 (“toss-up” districts or those that “likely” or “lean” Republican or Democrat), we focus on races where AAPIs make up at least 5 percent of eligible voters. This gives us a total of 27 congressional districts spanning 11 states, including in places where AAPIs are a fast-growing segment of the population.
