Hispanics and the 2006 Election

The Pew Hispanic Center today released a new fact sheet indicating the number of Hispanics that are over 18 years old and U.S. citizens, and thus eligible to vote in the upcoming election.

Here's the quick and dirty: the Pew Hispanic Center estimates that 17 million Hispanics will be eligible to vote in November, which is a 8.6 % of the total population of eligible U.S. voters.

Hispanics today constitute 14.5% of the total U.S. population. You can download the complete report from the link above.
