    Californians voting in the Nov. 4 election will have eight new languages to choose from when registering online.

    Aside from English and Spanish, Californians will now be able to choose between Chinese, Hindi, Japanese, Khmer, Korean, Tagalog, Thai and Vietnamese, according to a statement from Asian American’s Advancing Justice Los Angeles.

    In 2012, about 58 percent of Asians and Latinos were registered to vote in California, as opposed to 72 percent of non-Hispanic whites and 69 percent of African Americans, according to Advancing Justice.

    The legal and civil rights group hopes the new languages offered online will boost participation “among Asian Americans and Latinos in California who tend to have relatively low voter registration rates.”
