The Almanac of Latino Politics

NEA-MCO is a proud sponsor of The Almanac of Latino Politics. The report provides a detailed survey of Latino voter registration, voter turnout, and voting behavior in all presidential elections since 1976, as well as in recent federal and state elections.

The Almanac also compares Latino voting behavior in presidential elections with white and black voters, union members, and women, and explores the implications of the Latino population and voter participation growth over the next 25 years in the United States.

Sponsors and supporters of “The Emerging Power of Ethnic/Racial Minorities in Congressional Elections” come together for a press conference in conjunction with the US Hispanic Leadership Institute annual conference.  Pictured from left to right are:  Antonio Villaraigosa, Mayor, City of Los Angeles; Dr. Victoria DeFrancesco Soto, report author; Dr. Juan Andrade, President and CEO, USHLI; M. Rita Jaramillo, NEA,(at podium) Kevin Parker from Black Civic Engagement and Cesar Moreno, AFT.


In February 2009 the NEA collaborated with the US Hispanic Leadership Institute to sponsor a special report to the Almanac entitled “The Emerging Power of Ethnic/Racial Minorities in Congressional Elections.”   The report focuses on the combined population of Latinos, African Americans, Asians and other minorities ranges from 100,000 to 600,000 or more.  Minorities comprise the majority of the population in 200 of these districts today. 

The Almanac of Latino Politics and subsequent special reports are a must read for campaign strategists, pundits, corporate and labor leaders, public and private sector policy¬makers, academicians, researchers, commentators and columnists in electronic and print media, students, Internet users, and anyone else trying to understand the political implications of Latino population growth.
