A group of Hispanic evangelical leaders are encouraging voters to prioritize pro-life and religious liberty issues in the 2020 election.
With now one day left before the election, leaders behind El Voto Hispano advise citizens to vote “porque el voto latino cuenta” (“because the Latino vote counts”).
El Voto Hispano creator the Rev. Samuel Rodriguez said this election will be the most important in a generation. It’s not an exaggeration, he told The Christian Post.
“We’ve never had this massive divide in ideology before. Democrats and Republicans agreed on about 90% of the same things. But after 2012, we disagreed massively. We’ve never been down this road before. Not since the 1860s,” he said.
El Voto Hispano says that in 2020, saving unborn babies and religious freedom should come first.
“Every issue matters, but some issues matter more than others,” the site says. “It is impossible, illogical, and biblically incoherent to prioritize education, the alleviation of poverty and hunger, and racial reconciliation without first protecting Life at conception and religious expression from persecution.”
This year, eligible Hispanic voter numbers will reach 32 million; yet in the last presidential election, the majority of Hispanic citizens did not vote. Hispanic voter turnout was 47.6% in 2016.
