Most Latinos who could vote in the last three national elections chose not to

Turnout was just under 50% in 2008, and fell to 48% in 2012. It dropped to 27% in the 2014 midterms, the lowest rate ever recorded for Latinos. The lack of engagement is not new; Latino voter turnout has lagged behind that of whites and blacks for decades. Asian-American voter turnout has also been below black and white turnout since at least 1992; it was even with Latino voter turnout in 2012.
