NALEO Educational Fund Releases 2012 Colorado Primary Electoral Profile

From NALEO – The National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) Educational Fund, the nation’s leading organization that facilitates the full participation of Latinos in the American political process, today released its 2012 primary electoral profile for the state of Colorado.

“Latinos accounted for 42% of the total population growth in the state of Colorado over the past ten years,” stated NALEO Educational Fund Executive Director Arturo Vargas. “Campaigns and candidates will need to actively work to engage Latino voters if they hope to capture the support of this growing electorate in Colorado.”

With Latinos accounting for one out of every ten registered voters in Colorado, the Latino electorate is poised to play a crucial role in shaping the outcome of the state’s 2012 election contest. According to CNN exit poll data from the 2008 Presidential election, 61% of Colorado Latino voters supported President Barack Obama, a number which helped him gain a critical victory over Senator John McCain.
