Seventy percent of Latino voters are “very enthusiastic” about voting, while 57 percent are more enthusiastic about voting in 2012 than in 2008., according to a new poll presented at the Latino Voter and Politics of Immigration forum at the University of Miami on October 4.

Jonathan Rodrigues, who grew up in the large Brazilian community in Pompano Beach in Broward County and spoke at the forum, said the Latino voters he has encountered in the field as an organizer for Florida New Majority “are excited to vote, all they want from us is information and mobilization.”

Florida New Majority Education Fund’s non-partisan volunteers and staff have been working to register voters in urban areas in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties. The organization has so far registered more than 10,000 voters, with a goal of 15,000 by Oct. 9.

Throughout this Election cycle, it wasn't uncommon for many non-profits to rely on Twitter, Facebook and other social media outlets to "get out the vote." But some groups still went about it the old-fashioned way. WLRN-Miami-Herald reporter Christine DiMattei takes a closer look.
