Restrictive voting laws

Restrictive voting laws threaten to block millions of Latino voters Continued from page 8 proving citizenship either to register to vote or to vote. Multiple studies have found that Latinos and other minorities are less likely to possess the necessary documents. All of these restrictions have passed despite any hard evidence that voter fraud is a problem. NALEO estimates that more than 875,000 Latinos in these 19 states could be seriously impeded from participating in the 2016 Presidential election. According to NALEO Executive Director Arturo Vargas, “More than 13.1 million Latino voters are expected to cast ballots in 2016. While historic, we know millions more will stay at home on Election Day.” While Latinos and other citizens feel compelled by the current immigration debate to exercise their constitutional right to vote in the upcoming elections, many may be deterred from having their voices heard and votes counted. The barriers to full civic participation in the U.S. are extremely troublesome and must be addressed.
