RALEIGH, NC .- From the last week of February to April, the organization El Pueblo will tour 10 counties in North Carolina to register voters, especially Latinos, with a view to the elections that will take place this year.

The tour that kicked off this Friday, February 25, in Onslow will also cover Wake, Alamance, Chatham, Cumberland, Pitt, Mecklenburg, Johnston, Raldolph and Lee counties.

An estimated 1.4 million people are eligible to be registered to vote in North Carolina, of which 170,000 are Latino/Hispanic.

As of February 19, according to the Board of Elections, there were 242,777 Latinos registered to vote.

“We want all Latino people in the state who can vote to exercise that right,” said María González, Manager of Policy Promotion at El Pueblo.

González explained that El Pueblo will work with Latino organizations and partners in those counties to reach Latino voters, especially in rural areas. Also with volunteers to train them on voter registration in their communities.

“We want to create relationships with volunteers and community members from all of those counties so that they know of all the resources and their rights so when the election comes they are empowered and confident to go vote. So when the elections come, they have the confidence to go vote and know where and how to do it, as well as knowing that El Pueblo is here to support them,” he said.
