A Chinese immigrant, Kelly Wong, has been elected to San Francisco’s Election Commission as the first non-citizen member after the citizenship requirement was removed in 2020.

Wong, an immigrant rights advocate, aims to help non-English-speaking migrants get involved in the election process by addressing language and cultural barriers.

“I’ve seen how language and cultural barriers prevent immigrants with limited English proficiency from fully exercising their right to vote,” Wong said.

“Is there a way to do voter outreach that is not just about translation but can touch on political education while maintaining neutrality and impartiality in elections?”

Some question the impartiality of her role in voter outreach efforts.
