4.18ExitPollNYC2.jpgIn the 2016 Presidential Election, 13,846 Asian American voters participated in the nation's largest nonpartisan multilingual exit poll, conducted by the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF). The Asian American Exit Poll was conducted in 11 Asian languages and English in 55 cities across 14 states - NY, NJ, MA, PA, VA, MD, MI, GA, LA, FL, TX, NV, NM, and CA - and Washington, DC.
