Latinos Celebrate Voter Outreach

Outreach groups pose for a voter.

Voter registration groups celebrated on Tuesday after an outreach effort that registered nearly 40,000 Hispanic voters and canvassed to 125,000 homes across Central Florida. Poll numbers came in while canvassers danced in the sneakers they’d worn while door-knocking.

Mi Familia Vota Florida Director Nancy Batista said no matter the results a party is due. “Well today is more of a celebration for our canvassers for our leads. We want to celebrate the work they have done. Without them we would not have been able to celebrate the work they have done.”

Most of the people on the dance floor at Simon Parrilla Bar & Grill could not vote due to their immigration status.

Volunteers  spent early voting week and Election Day driving people to the polls from five in the morning to seven at night.
