 SACRAMENTO, CA – Organizers of CIVICA Latino, a statewide nonpartisan nonprofit effort, today launched their new organization and laid out their strategy to increase Latino voter participation for the 2018 Primary election by 500,000 voters in California, in the process beginning to permanently change the voting habits of Latino voters. Republican, Democrat and Nonpartisan political experts lead the recently formed effort.

"Our democracy works best when every eligible voter is registered, every citizen votes, and all voters feel welcome at the polls,” said California Secretary of State Alex Padilla. “Closing the civic engagement gap is critical. I applaud CIVICA Latino for working to ensure maximum civic participation in California.”
