WORLD JOURNAL (世界日报) COVERS NYCL'S VOLUNTEER PROGRAM PROVIDING LANGUAGE ASSISTANCE TO CHINESE AMERICAN VOTERS IN RICHMOND COUNTY

史泰登島投票站中文翻譯缺少 華裔組織號召義工協助

史泰登岛/里士满郡,在2016年的人口普查局评估中,华人人口未达到选举法案列出的指标,于是该郡的选票(选票样本如下一条报道的配图所示)不像皇后郡、国王郡(即布鲁克林,选票样本如本条配图所示)和纽约郡(即曼哈顿)一样配备中文翻译。近五年来,史岛华人人口激增,已在2019年美国社区问卷调查的估测中超过5.4%(尚不包括未如实填写“华人”的部分华裔群体)纽约社区联盟组织华人义工,帮助需要翻译的华人选民,并提醒大家,尤其是新搬入史岛的华人家庭,人口普查局的American Community Survey (美国社区问卷调查),对史岛的华人民生至关重要,请如实填写抽样调查的问卷,保证华人在史岛的统计学数字匹配真实情况,才能在史岛享受法律保护的权利。

SINGTAO DAILY (星岛日报) COVERS NYCL'S VOLUNTEER PROGRAM PROVIDING LANGUAGE ASSISTANCE TO CHINESE AMERICAN VOTERS IN RICHMOND COUNTY

史岛投票站全无中文服务 华裔团体恐受影响团体急招义工

Section 203 of the Voting Rights Act protects minority language groups, including the Chinese-speaking group the right to access language assistance to vote, and the addition of Chinese language on ballot was determined by the latest Census Bureau statistics in 2016. Richmond County unfortunately did not reach the threshold at that time. However, Chinese population has been rapidly growing in the last five years, and up to today there are still Chinese families moving into Richmond County/Staten Island every month. The 2019 ACS 1-year estimate has 5.4% Chinese population in the entire population of the county, with a significant growing trend. The need for Chinese language assistance for Richmond County has been more and more urgent. NYCL is organizing volunteers to provide language assistance to voters with limited proficiency in English, and volunteers need to work non-partisan and may not ask voters to vote a specific candidate.
