HISPANIC VOTE PARTNERS WITH HISPANIC LEADERSHIP NETWORK AND OTHERS TO REGISTER, EDUCATE AND ENGAGE YOUNG VOTERS
Washington, D.C. – Hispanicvote.com has partnered with National Voter Registration Day, the Hispanic Leadership Network, and Turbo Vote to register, educate and engage young voters in the democratic political process of our country.
Next Tuesday, September 25th, Hispanic Vote will bring together volunteers, civic groups, and other organizations from around the country in a National Voter Registration Day. This single day of coordinated field, technology, and earned media efforts seeks to increase the youth’s awareness of the opportunities to register to vote ( www.nationalvoterregistrationday.org ).
“Hispanics will not reach their full potential as an economic and political powerhouse in our country while a large number of our youth remain disengaged from our electoral process. It is now more critical than ever that young people from all walks of life are educated on the policy issues that matter most and encouraged to exercise their precious right to vote,” said HLN Executive Director Jennifer S. Korn.
Hispanicvote.com is a leading digital and media platform with more than 30,000 followers on its Facebook fan page, and over 11,000 Twitter followers discussing the ongoing political process in the United States.
“Hispanic Vote will focus on the key battleground states: California, Arizona, Ohio, Florida, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada and Virginia, where Hispanics comprise 13% or more of the electorate. In Virginia, for example, it is estimated that there are approximately 200,000 Hispanic registered voters that could make the difference in the closely contested 2012 senatorial and presidential races,” said Hispanic Vote Founder Dennis Garcia.
