FIRST VOTE is a rare look at Asian American passions on both sides of the political divide in election battleground states Ohio and North Carolina. Lance Chen is a Chinese immigrant and professor at the University of Dayton who became a citizen in 2016 specifically to vote Republican in Ohio. Sue Googe, also an immigrant from China, owns a real estate business and made an unsuccessful Tea Party bid for a congressional seat in North Carolina. Kaiser Kuo is a writer, musician and former Baidu executive, but he’s also an avid Democratic activist in North Carolina. Jennifer Ho is a professor at the University of North Carolina, and brings deep understandings of racism to her teaching and worldview. Director Yi Chen allows us to hear from all of them.
