Latino voting strength is growing in Georgia. But not by as much as it could. That's the conclusion of a new report issued by the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials. It found the state's Latino electorate is eight-percent larger than it was in two-thousand-eight. But it's also less interested in voting.
An attorney for the city of Gainesville says the city isn't worried about its at-large voting system, even after a federal judge struck down a similar model in Fayette County. But the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials isn't so sure.
