The ACE Network is Ohio’s only AAPI-focused, nonpartisan, civic engagement network in the state aimed at increasing voter participation rates in immigrant communities. ACE has registered over 1,400 voters across the state as part of a coordinated effort to provide voter education aimed at increasing voter turnout and closing the parity gap in Ohio.
