The Chicago Board of Election Commissioners welcomed Kimico Mehta as the new South Asian Community Service Representative.

Mehta began in the new position on April 1, 2022 and will work directly with South Asian and Hindi-speaking voters, helping with registration, early voting and vote-by-mail, bilingual poll worker recruitment, accessibility, and more, a press release from CBOE said.

“Voting is an important constitutional right and gives new citizens a voice to tell their elected officials what their neighborhoods need. I look forward to working closely with South Asian communities in Chicago to register and educate all those who are eligible to vote,” Mehta is quoted saying in the press release.

Mehta has a background in advertizing, media, theater, television, and film experience in India and the United States. She has been a content writer and translator in English and Hindi in advertising, television, and films. She has a Masters in filmmaking from Northwestern University.

“We are thrilled for Kimico to join our team, and I know she will be a tremendous resource for Chicago’s South Asian communities ahead of four elections in a row in 2022 and 2023,” said Executive Director Charles Holiday, Jr. Mehta can be reached at 773.771.9480 and for assistance.
