The Latino Voter
The Latino Voter

AIR DATE: May 17, 2012

Latinos are the fastest-growing U.S. voter group.  But few actually turn up to vote - in Nogales, there's 29% voter turnout, even though the town is 90% Latino.  So why aren't members of the most courted ethnic voting group showing up to the polls?  Are they illegal immigrants who can't register?  Or is it general voter apathy?  And how do Latino voters feel about promises made during Obama's 2008 campaign?  As one Latino voter told the Huffington Post, "We can be angry, but we cannot vote for [Mitt Romney]."  Who is today's Latino voter?  Reporters from the Fronteras Changing America desk join us.
