Election 2016: Where are the Asian American voters?

26 October 2016 Last updated at 01:34 BST

Asian Americans are the fastest growing demographic in the US, but are less politically active than black, white and Hispanic voters.

According to the Pew Research Center, they have the lowest voter turnout of any major ethnic group in the United States.

Why is participation so low? And will things change after this year's presidential election?

The BBC attended an Asian American voter registration event in Virginia to hear the community's thoughts.
