Voting and political empowerment

Latinos are the second-largest group of voters in the country. We reach out to voters and potential voters to make sure all eligible Latinos are registered, informed, and engaged in the political process every year.

National Survey of Latino Voters

National Survey of Latino Voters

In a period that has brought the shock of Uvalde, restrictions on women’s rights, and climate-related destruction, this large poll of Latino voters found that their priorities have experienced a seismic shift.

Latinos can determine who wins elections.

The 2020 elections proved what we already knew: if you engage Hispanic voters, they will show up and cast decisive votes.

We strive for a vibrant democracy that lifts all voices and strengthens civil society. We support policies and programs that make registration and voting accessible to all Americans, particularly those long underrepresented; ensures leaders are accountable to all communities; and foster solutions-driven engagement.

Our work

We put the full force of our organization into the UnidosUS Adelante! 2020 Campaign, dedicated to making sure Latinos were the most active, engaged, and informed group of voters in the election, ready to move the country forward.

Voter Priorities

We asked Latino voters about what matters to them most. See what they said in 2020 and all the way back to 2006. Look at national data as well as responses from states with high Hispanic populations.
