3,000 Latino voters signed up door to door
Seven workers are going door to door in Yuma County to get eligible Latino voters to register for permanent early voting ballots.
“They are going by precinct and talking to folks,” said Francisco Heredia, Arizona state director for Mi Familia Vota and spokesman for One Arizona, the organizations behind the effort.
“It has been mainly Latino voters that we are trying to make sure sign up on the permanent early voter list because we feel that by them being on this list they have ample time to make an informed decision on the candidates and propositions that are going to be on the ballot.”
In just two months, the seven canvassers have gotten more than 3,000 local Hispanics to sign up for the early ballot.
“Our goal was above 3,000 and we’ve met that goal,” Heredia said.
The group is nonpartisan, and Heredia said it is not their intention to tell voters who to vote for.
