Even Saturday Night Live writers are addressing the importance of the U.S. Hispanic vote.
This past weekend, during the season premiere of Saturday Night Live, Weekend Update reporter Seth Meyers introduced actress Celia Strong, who played a young Latina by the name of Mimi Morales.
Meyers opened the segment by saying, "Republicans are trying harder than ever to court Latino voters."

Morales, a 17-year-old Latina and "Get Out the Vote" volunteer, never got to the nitty gritty as to why the Hispanic vote is important during this presidential election, but the issue has graduated to mainstream media now that SNL has tackled it.
In SNL fashion, Morales played up the stereotypes. She gave attitude, talked with her hands, and brought her Dominican boyfriend with her because he is so jealous and protective.
