CNN EN ESPAÑOL AND CITY UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK
CENTER FOR LATIN AMERICAN, CARIBBEAN AND LATINO STUDIES
AT THE GRADUATE CENTER TO RELEASE EXCLUSIVE RESEARCH ON THE IMPACT OF LATINOS ON U.S. ELECTIONS
REPORT #1 – THE LATINO VOTER REGISTRATION DILEMMA
CNN en Español and the Center for Latin American, Caribbean and Latino Studies (CLACLS) at the Graduate Center, City University of New York (CUNY), have partnered to provide an exclusive focus on Latino voters in America, the fastest growing minority voting bloc that could play an instrumental role in determining the next President of the United States.
CNN en Español will present CLACLS’s detailed monthly reports — spanning a variety of election-related topics — across the television network and digital platforms leading up to key caucus and primary election dates.
The first report, THE LATINO VOTER REGISTRATION DILEMMA, focuses on the historic low voter turnout level among Latinos in presidential elections, despite their increase as a percentage of all voters at the national level to a projected 9.9% in the upcoming 2016 presidential elections. Only 48% of eligible Latino voters cast ballots in the 2012 elections compared with 64% of non-Hispanic whites and 66% of non-Hispanic blacks. The critical problem identified in this report is that voter registration rates among Latinos have remained steady at 58% of potential voters between the 1992 and 2012 presidential elections, despite well publicized voter-registration drives. An analysis of voter registration patterns by age and sex reveals that the most numerous eligible Latino voters, those between 18 and 44 years of age, register at even lower rates than the average and that Latino males in this demographic register at significantly lower rates than Latinas. Once registered, however, Latinos turn out at fairly high rates in presidential elections, over 80%, but their overall impact in national elections is compromised by low registration rates. The details of THE LATINO VOTER REGISTRATION DILEMMA as well as key state-level data is reviewed with precise data and is the first in a monthly series. FULL POST
