Are You — Or Do You Know — A Young Latino Voter Who Plans On Voting For The First Time?

Every 30 seconds, a Latino citizen in the United States reaches voting age. Latinos are expected to play a huge role in the 2020 federal elections, and KPBS is collaborating with the public radio program "The World," to talk to young, Latino would-be voters ahead of the 2020 election.

What's motivating them to head to the polls? What are their main concerns? Why or why aren't they voting, and if the election will truly hinge on their participation, how are they wielding this responsibility? Between school, work, and family, do they even have the time to vote?

KPBS wants to hear from young Latinos and their families about the issues that impact them as they think about voting in 2020.

We’d like to profile a prospective young voter as we approach the historic 2020 election, with the country at a crossroads over what the government will look like and who it will work for.
