Translators Bridge Gap For Cleveland's Non-English Speaking Voters

The Asian Evergreen Apartments is a senior living facility in Cleveland’s AsiaTown occupied by Asian Americans – most of whom speak little or no English. So when it comes voting, they need some help reading the ballot.

Mike West from the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections offered some voting tips for those who speak something other than English or Spanish as their primary language.

Susan Liu from the Cleveland Chinese Senior Citizens Association translated those tips into Mandarin.
