Voting

 

Este es nuestro último episodio de la tempoarada, así que decidimos hablar acerca de la importancia del voto. Tu voto cuenta. Este año que viene mas personas de color van a ser elegibles para el voto que en años pasados. According to the Pew Research Center, the 2020 election will mark the first time that Hispanics will be the largest racial or ethnic minority group in the electorate. 

With 2020 around the corner, many Latino Journalists find themselves making the decision to cover or not the elections. Many decide to become activists while others don’t share their personal opinions on politics.

In this episodio, I talk to fellow journalist Judith Ruiz-Branch about what is like para Latinos cubrir a Latinos in the media and how it can be frustrating and empowering to tell the stories of our community. Escucha.

This season we’re staying on top of two major topics happening this and the next year ; the census and the 2020 elections. 

Por si no lo sabias, este año the debate of the citizenship question being on the census form filled our news feeds. Escuchamos que era algo bueno por que it would have given us an accurate count of Hispanos and Latinos that needed help with things like legal aid or language assistance. Others thought this could put a target on the undocumented population and made them nervous.

The Indiana Election Commission recently approved the first paper backups for electronic voting machines.

In 2016, more than 47 million votes were cast early, compared to 27 million in 2014. Yet this year’s advance vote count — which measures both absentee ballots and in-person early voting — has already exceeded the count from four years ago.

In states like Nevada, Arizona, Illinois, Tennessee, New Mexico, and Florida early voting has gone beyond levels of the last midterms and in some cases is nearing the total turnout seen four years ago.
