The National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) Educational Fund, released its 2012 primary electoral profile for the state of Arizona.
“Nearly 16% of voters in the state of Arizona are Latino,” stated NALEO Educational Fund Executive Director Arturo Vargas. “Given the size of the Latino electorate and the fact that Arizona has played host to several competitive presidential elections over the last few decades, we know the support of Latino voters will play a critical role in the outcome of the 2012 election.”
With Arizona emerging as “ground zero” in the nation’s debate over immigration policy, the state’s anti-immigrant climate could play a significant role in mobilizing Latinos to cast ballots in the 2012 primary and general elections.
There are 11 electoral college votes at stake in tomorrow’s primary.
