Did you know that Latinos make up 38% of the state’s total population…but only 17% of likely voters?
Tomorrow, San Francisco voters will be asked to decide on a number of important municipal and local ballot measures pertaining to the city’s affordable housing crisis and various other issues that affect Latino families. Are you going to vote? If you aren’t able to, because of your legal status, how can you inspire others to do so?
Local Elections matter. The Latino voice and participation really matters. In reality, your vote for mayor, sheriff and affordable housing propositions will probably affect your day to day life more so than next year’s presidential race.
On Election Day, November 3rd, we must find the time to vote. Not only is it our right, but it is our civic duty. Your vote, or lack of vote, sends a message to those who are elected to represent our interests.
The Latino vote continues to grow! We have an incredible opportunity to make our voices heard. Be sure to get to the polls on November 3rd!
