Los Angeles Latino/a Voting Power: A Post-Election Analysis
We invite you to join us on December 5th from 1:30 PM to 3:00 PM for a virtual Post-Election Analysis hosted by Alliance for a Better Community, where we will discuss the importance of the Latino/a vote in Los Angeles.
According to estimates, Latino/a voters were projected to make up more than two in five of all Los Angeles County voters. With nearly 1.2 million Latino/a registered voters in the County, Los Angeles had the highest percentage of Latino/a voters in the entire nation.
Given the potential voting power, we want to know: How did Latino/as vote in this year’s election? What are the implications of Latino/s not voting locally and nationally? What is needed to successfully engage and increase voter education within Latino/a communities?
