After knocking on more than 16,000 doors in the state, national Latino advocacy organizations and their volunteers are planning to target three areas in Colorado to get out the vote on Election Day.
Mi Familia Vota and the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO), two nonpartisan organizations, have announced a three-point strategy for Election Day in Denver, Weld County and Pueblo County.
The plan includes distributing door hangers and canvassing door-to-door in Latino neighborhoods, reminding individuals to vote. The organizations will also provide Spanish assistance to voters with poll questions, assisting with what public officials in Denver say is a dramatic need for Spanish-speaking poll workers.
All of the actions are part of a national a drive by the organizations to get more than 1 million newly registered Latino voters to the polls.
