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.
Georgians head to the polls next Tuesday to select Republican and Democratic nominees for Governor and other statewide and local races. To get a sense of what’s motivating voters, Rickey Bevington checked in with some newspapers around the state. mEarly voting for the July 20 primary continues through Friday. Polls open at 7 next Tuesday morning.
