WASHINGTON, D.C.—On Thursday, Sept. 8, 2016 from 11 a.m. to noon, NCLR (National Council of La Raza) will host a roundtable discussion titled “Dynamics of the Latino Electorate: Shaping the 2016 Elections.” Expert panelists will discuss the growing Hispanic electorate, its increasing geographic diversity, national efforts to engage and register eligible voters, and Latino enthusiasm about the upcoming elections.

A recent poll demonstrates that Latino voters are highly enthusiastic about voting in the November election. But will this larger and more active Latino electorate tip the balance in local, state or national races this November? Are the parties making their case to the Latino community, which is over 55 million strong? What will motivate Latinos to turn out to vote this coming Election Day? These are just some of the questions our panelists will explore.

Reporters interested in attending should contact Camila Gallardo at or (305) 215-4259.
