FOR IMMEDIATE DISTRIBUTION
Los Angeles, CA - On March 21, 2018, the Korean American Coalition (KAC), in collaboration with the CA Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), CA Department of Technology (CDT), CA Secretary of State, and the Center for Civic Design, held a test of the new online driver’s license/ID card form with voter registration options to evaluate the accuracy and effectiveness of the Korean versions of the voter registration questions. The feedback and comments received from the 17 Korean community members through this test session will be used to improve the new form.
Beginning on April 16, people who go to the DMV for a driver’s license or ID card will fill out their form on their phone or a kiosk, and will have the option to register to vote or opt out. KAC is working with the CA DMV, CDT, CA Secretary of State, and the Center for Civic Design in order to ensure that the Korean community’s perspective is represented in these changes.
