Spanish Newspapers Send Out Voter Registration Cards

La Opinin, Posted: Oct 03, 2008

LOS ANGELES Last weekend, Spanish-language newspapers around the country inserted one million voter registration cards in their newspapers. The move was part of the nonpartisan Latino voter registration campaign "Ya es hora: Ve y vota!" (Its time: Go vote!), which began as a citizenship drive last year. Organizations participating in the campaign include ImpreMedia, the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), the Education Fund, My Family Votes, and the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO). NALEO expects 9.2 million, out of an eligible 17 million, Latino voters to go to the polls on Election Day, which is 20 percent more than the Latino voter turnout in the last presidential election. The voter registration cards were distributed in El Mensajero (San Francisco), La Opinin (Los Angeles) La Voz (Phoenix), El Semanario (Denver), La Prensa (Orlando), El Nuevo Herald (Miami); La Raza (Chicago), El Diario-La Prensa (New York), Hoy (New York), Rumbo (San Antonio, Houston and the Ro Grande Valley), and Diario La Estrella (Fort Worth/Dallas).
