Latino Youth Vote 2016
- Resource Type:
Reaching out to young Latino voters has been an important effort for candidates on both sides of the aisle. This segment from Youth Radio—featured on NPR’s “Morning Edition”—explains how the young Latino vote is varied, with young Latino voters concerned about a range of different issues, and that Presidential candidates might have a tough time reaching this growing population of millennial voters due to a widespread sentiment that politics is broken and does not often serve their interests.
