The Latino Voter
Here’s where and how Latino voters can shape 2018.
Latinos are the second fastest growing group of Americans. In fact, every 30 seconds, a Latino citizen turns 18. EVERY 30 SECONDS. Awesome, right? Yes, but here’s the thing. It’s not enough to be eligible to vote. You need to register. In 2016, there were approximately 27.3 million eligible Latino voters in this country. In fact, in 2012, 41 percent of Latinos who were eligible to vote did not register. With our size and the number of growing eligible voters, we have the power to change this is already ours. First step: Register today.
Local, state and national.
Latinos are in a position to impact local, state and national elections. And we should want to, given that so many decisions that impact our community are made by state and local leaders, not just national ones. But many of us don’t even know how much of a difference we can make. For example, in key states like Arizona, Colorado and Florida 40 percent of eligible Hispanic voters aren’t even registered. Know someone who isn’t registered, yet? Send them this voter registration link.
In the general election.
The midterm election will most certainly be impacted by Latino voters. This show of political force goes on to help define which issues get addressed first, starts with voting. So, please, for the future of this country, one where we will be the largest minority, register today and vote on November 6, 2018.
