With the improvement of education level and economic status, Chinese Americans are paying more attention to their votes, he said.Xu said that the COVID-19 pandemic in the US inspired a sense of responsibility among Chinese.
“In San Francisco, Philip Choi, advisor of the Chinese American Association of Commerce, has also noticed an increasing enthusiasm among ethnic Chinese to vote.
“In the 2018 midterm elections, 2.576 million Chinese Americans were eligible to vote, accounting for a quarter of the Asian American vote base.
“The Chinese community in the US would definitely want to avoid being affected by the China-US tension, like the Japanese people were in the US during the World War II.
“The Chinese community in the US is not the biggest minority group, and might not be able to bring much effect to the election.
