Volunteers Daisy Campos (R), 23, Victor Ibarra Jr. (C), 23, and Michael Garza, 17, share a laugh during a volunteer meeting at the headquarters of Jolt, a non-profit organization that works to increase the civic participation of Latinos in Texas, in Houston, Texas on February 20, 2020. - US census data shows that Texas's Hispanic population grew from 9.5 to 11.4 million between 2010 and 2018, and is on track to become the largest population group in the state by 2022. That mirrors the trend nationwide where a record 32 million Latinos are projected to be eligible to vote in 2020, surpassing blacks as the largest minority group in the electorate, according to Pew Research. That is a four million increase since 2016.
But turnout has been a persistent challenge: since 1996, Pew data shows that most eligible Latinos have not cast ballots in US presidential elections. (Photo by Mark Felix / AFP) (Photo by MARK FELIX/AFP /AFP via Getty Images)
