Consider what Hector Ruiz and Cristina Tzintzún Ramirez write to get a sense of our potential electoral power in terms of being poised to have an extraordinary impact on the election:
Across the U.S, since 2016, 4.7 million Latinos have become eligible to vote, the greatest increase of any ethnic group in the country. Each year over 900,000 Latinos turn 18, many in key swing states such as Texas, Florida and Arizona. And in Texas alone, an average of 210,000 Latinos will turn 18 each year, with 95% of them U.S. citizens – roughly one-half of all new eligible voters coming of age in the state. In short, young Latinos represent one of the largest and fastest-growing political forces in America.
Do note that the voter registration deadline is just 15 days away. Note, as well, that in 2016, Trump won Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin only by a total of 80,000 votes.Texas is a big state and boasts almost as many electoral votes as these 3 states combined.
Do make sure that yours and your family members' voter registration is current here:
