Wisconsin Hmong To Elect Clan President For First Time

Many people living in Wisconsin will get to vote in two elections this week.

Besides today's balloting for state and national offices, an election for president of Hmong clans in Wisconsin is happening on Saturday. Houa Vang of Sheboygan, an organizer of the first-ever vote, says a clan council president can help settle domestic disputes in Hmong families instead of calling in local government.  Until now, the president of the Hmong group in Wisconsin had been chosen by a well-known Hmong leader. Voting in the La Crosse area will be done at the Hmong Cultural Center on Ward Avenue.
