Political News Story of the Month

STATS SHOW PROBLEMS & NEED OF LATINO VOTER INCREASE

Hispanic voters speak with a strong voice. We get better every time we do this. Currently the nation’s contingent of roughly 12 million undocumented workers is unable to vote. Voter registration and turnout among Hispanics have always been lackadaisical, and the high concentration of Hispanic residents in states generally not in play during presidential cycles has served to further dampen the impact of the Hispanic vote. Furthermore, Hispanic residents who do vote regularly tend to resist ready mobilization into voting blocs. In the current 2008 election cycle, organizers hope to overcome these obstacles. According to U.S. census data from 2004, approximately 16 million, or two-thirds of the country’s 27 million Hispanic voting-age residents, are eligible to vote. But of these, only 58 percent registered to vote, compared with 75 percent of whites and 69 percent of African-Americans. Only 47 percent — 7.6 million people, or taken as a slice of the total 2004 voting population, about 6 percent — actually cast a vote in the general election. Still, that marked an improvement over the 2000 cycle, when they accounted for just 5 percent of the overall voting population. By 2006, the percentage bumped up to 8 — an all-time high, but still well shy of expectations in the wake of the immigration protests that spring.

It’s predicted that traditional growth in the Hispanic community will yield about 9.2 million voters in 2008. “That’s the figure to beat California, Texas, New York and Illinois — account for two-thirds of the overall Hispanic population

Hispanics in the 2008 Election: California

California’s Hispanic population is the largest of any state in the nation. More than 13 million Hispanics reside in California, 30% of all Hispanics in the United States. There are over 5 million eligible Hispanic voters in California, 28% of all U.S. Hispanic eligible voters.

Hispanics in California’s Eligible Voter Population

California’s population is 36% Hispanic, the second-highest Hispanic population share nationally behind New Mexico with 45%. And 23% of eligible voters in California are Latinos, the third-largest Hispanic eligible voter population share nationally behind New Mexico with 38% and Texas with 25%. 38% of Latinos in California are eligible to vote, ranking California 26th nationwide in the share of the Hispanic population that is eligible to vote (data from the Census Bureau’s 2006 American Community Survey).
