In an effort to get out the Latino vote for the upcoming midterm elections, VotoLatino has come out with a few new public service announcements. These are definitely geared for more youthful voters, and hopefully they will have an impact. Midterm elections traditionally have a lower turnout, and many are predicting that Latino voter turnout may not be as high as it was in 2008 because of the inaction on immigration, the struggling economy, etc.
So these PSAs serve as a reminder for everyone who is eligible to vote to please mark November 2 in your calendars, register to vote if you haven’t already or if you have moved, and if you think you are too busy to vote on November 2, request an absentee ballot now. Voting absentee is very convenient.
What are your thoughts? Are these messages compelling in the current environment? Do you think they will make a difference?
