Asian American women are among the lowest voting populations in America despite having exhibited traditionally predictive voting behaviors such as high rates of education and levels of socioeconomic status. The low participation of this demographic prompts research into their voting behavior. Our research analyzes the CCES cumulative data set through three hypotheses that evaluate the significance of education, income, home ownership, and partisan identification on Asian women's voting behavior. We find that all three variables, educational attainment, SES, and partisan ID are statistically significant predictors of Asian American women’s voter participation with a special focus on the role of home ownership.
