UnidosUS, USC to Release Voter Briefs Measuring Potential Latino Voter Impact in Key Districts

July 5, 2018

WASHINGTON, DC—On Monday, July 9, 2018, UnidosUS (formerly NCLR) will host a press briefing entitled: “Latino Tipping Point: How Latinos Are Poised to Impact Key Districts in the Midterm Elections,” where the group will release a series of briefs that explore Latino voting power based on research conducted by the California Civic Engagement Project at the University of Southern California. The data compiled takes a deep dive on Latino voter trends— both past and present—and the factors fueling turnout and engagement among eligible voters.

During the briefing, speakers will reveal key research findings; explain how the data helps inform a profile of the Latino voter and provide predictions of the competitive districts where the Latino electorate can have a strong showing at the ballot box. Representatives from UnidosUS and the California Civic Engagement Project (CCEP) at the University of Southern California’s Sol Price School of Public Policy, will guide the discussion and outline how meaningful investments in voter outreach in key states can be critical to ensuring the effective engagement and full expansion of the Latino electorate.
