Hispanicvote.com has partnered with National Voter Registration Day and Turbo Vote to register, educate and engage young voters.
On Sept. 25, Hispanic Vote will join volunteers, civic groups and other organizations from around the country for National Voter Registration Day. This single day of coordinated field, technology and media efforts will create pervasive awareness of voter registration opportunities (www.nationalvoterregistrationday.org).
Turbo Vote's tagline is that "Turbo Vote makes voting as easy as renting a DVD from Netflix," said Seth Flaxman, Executive Director of Turbo Vote. "What Turbo Vote does is streamline the voter registration and absentee ballot request process using the Internet and good old U.S. mail. All in all, it's a pretty handy tool that uses the Internet to make the complicated voting process easier" (www.turbovote.org).
"Hispanicvote.com has become a leading digital and media platform with more than 18,000 followers on Hispanic Vote's Facebook fan page, and over 3,000 twitter followers discussing political campaign conversations," said Dennis Garcia Founder of Hispanic Vote.
"Hispanic vote will focus on the five key battleground states: Florida, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada and Virginia, where Hispanics comprise 13 percent or more of the electorate. In Virginia it is estimated that there are approximately 200,000 Hispanic registered voters that could make the difference in the closely contested 2012 Senatorial and Presidential elections," concluded Garcia.
