Latino voting strength is growing in Georgia. But not by as much as it could. That's the conclusion of a new report issued by the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials. It found the state's Latino electorate is eight-percent larger than it was in two-thousand-eight. But it's also less interested in voting.
The national Center for Immigration Studies says Hispanics will cast about 4.4 percent of Georgia votes in the November election. Nationally, Hispanics will cast 9 percent of the votes, up from 7.8 percent in 2008.
