What we’ve done to empower our Latino voters in key states:

Listening Canvass Program

Latinos vote when they understand that elections matter and their votes could make the difference! We believe it’s crucial for us to be talking to Latino voters early and often about the issues that affect them and their community. Not only to educate them -- but to learn from them!

Launching Fall 2021

American Rescue Plan Initiative

At the start of 2021, Somos Votantes launched the American Rescue Plan Campaign to help educate voters about the American Rescue Plan which aimed to bring prosperity, jobs, and hope into the Latino community across the country! In addition, Somos PAC leaned in on highlighting how Democrats were fighting to bring these policies to their communities!

This initiative reached 414,000 people, had over 1.4 million impressions and had 2500 clicks across Facebook and Youtube targeting Latino voters in Arizona, Nevada, and Florida.

2020

2020 was the Inaugural Program Year for Somos Votantes and Somos PAC — and we built and ran the largest independent Latino voter program in the country!

Collectively, Somos Votantes and Somos PAC invested over $33 million across 9 battleground states.

In the midst of a global pandemic and one of the most consequential elections in U.S. history we showed up and won by turning out a record-breaking number of Latino voters. 

Latinos were key to victory in battleground states

2020 was a record-breaking year for Latino turnout across the country. President Joe Biden won ~70% of the Latino Vote nationally. An estimated 1.4 Million Latinos voted in Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin with President Biden winning more than 980,000 of those votes — giving him a margin of 40 points over Trump.

Early Voting Programs Worked

The Latino early vote alone came in at more than 8.6 million ballots compared to 3.7 million in 2016.

Pennsylvania saw an 840% increase in early voting.

North Carolina saw a 148% increase in early voting.

Florida saw an increase of 133% in early voting

Arizona saw an increase of 124% in early voting

70% - 90% supported President Biden in precincts with high Latino density.

In Arizona where President Biden won by 10,000 votes he netted 160,000 votes over Trump in the Maricopa county’s Latino community alone.

Nevada saw an increase of 147% in early voting

President Biden won the election by 33,000 votes, Latinos contributed a net new 89,300 new votes to the President’s victory.

Statewide there was 68% support for President Biden compared to 30% support for Trump. 

Wisconsin saw almost 80% supported Biden in precincts with high Latino density.

Investment in Women and Young Voters Worked

More than 1.7 million young Latinos (ages 18-29) voted early, an increase of 313 percent from 2016. Women voted for President Biden by about a 50 point margin.

Learn more about the work Somos Votantes and Somos PAC did to educate and mobilize Latino voters in 2020.

Across 9 battleground states, Somos PAC invested $23 million in direct voter contact.

In Arizona and Florida, we were one of the earliest field programs to kick off. Leading up to Election Day, our canvassers knocked on over 1.7 million doors.

We sent over 7 million pieces of mail throughout North Carolina, Michigan, Georgia, Florida, Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

Our volunteers called and texted 4.2 million voters in key battleground states like Arizona, Florida, and North Carolina.

We produced Spanish-language radio and TV ads all across Arizona, Florida, and Nevada. In Florida, through our TV ads, we featured Cuban-American voters from Miami voicing their support for Joe Biden as President.

Across the country, in partnership with allied organizations, Somos PAC helped elect hundreds of Democratic candidates up and down the ballot and advance Democratic issues like a $15 minimum wage in Florida. 

We know that increasing Latino voting power means turning out a new generation of voters. See what we’ve done to mobilize new voters of color in key states to help secure Democratic victories in 2020:
