Prensa Hispana: They Present a ‘Voter Guide’

By Javier Arce, Prensa Hispana (English Translation)

As Latino voters, many times we exercise our right to vote without knowing what or whom we are voting for.

Either because we don’t have time or we don’t like to get involved in political issues, we don’t get informed on the ballot measures or the candidates we are selecting.

Well from now on, that will not be an excuse after introducing the “Voting Guide 2012.”

This guide produced by Arizona Advocacy Network Foundation (AZAN Foundation) is part of a campaign whose goal is to maintain the community informed for the November elections.

“Making sense of ballot measures is a challenge,” said AZAN Foundation Executive Director Sam Wercinski. “That’s why we have teamed up with to inform Latino voters of the nine statewide ballot measures so they can make an informed vote.”

“These measures will have long-term consequences on Arizonans’ daily lives, our families and communities.”

Francisco Heredia, representative of Mi Familia Vota said that in addition to the guide, videos were also produced to make it easy for families to sit around the table and discuss the ballot measures that they will vote for in November.

The Voter Guide 2012 is a non-partisan, first of its kind guide with an easy-to-understand format. It includes information about voting at the polls, required identification requirements and more.
