Leaders urge Bronx Hispanic community to vote
Government officials always encourage Americans to vote, but for the September 13 primary election some community leaders are pushing extra hard for the Hispanic-American community?s vote.
City Council members along with leaders from Hispanic advocacy organizations argue many politicians overlook the Latino community by assuming they do not speak English. During a meeting at the Bronx Board of Elections, leaders said Hispanics make up almost 30 percent of the Bronx.
Bronx residents questioning where they are enrolled to vote can call 212-NYC-VOTE.
