Latino youth vote 2016

While many California youth say they’re not interested in voting, others can’t wait to turn 18 and get to the polls. Meanwhile, this election season has seen a burst of voter participation from Latino youth, many of whom come from families that don’t fit squarely into one of the two main political party affiliations. “Latinos don’t so much respond to a particular party. Where we really see ourselves is through our families and our communities. So if we hear messages that really demonstrate stewardship for our families, that’s where we go.” Listen to the full story on NPR and Youth Radio.
