2016 Get Out The Vote in Miami-Dade

EMPOWERING LATINO VOTERS

AIGA’s non-partisan, apolitical Get Out the Vote campaign wields the power of design to motivate the American public to register and turn out to vote in the 2016 general election.

With a Spanish-language campaign airing on TV Azteca, we are reaching 89% of Latinos nationwide with an important message: This year, your vote is a serious matter.

Now, AIGA Miami is turning our focus local to create massive impact among Latino voters in Miami-Dade county. Here’s a look at the campaign and the opportunities.

The Campaign: “ESTE AÑO, TU VOTO ES COSA SERIA”

This year, your vote is a serious matter. Nearly 30% of the US population will be Latino by the year 2050, yet only 48% of Latinos eligible to vote turned out on election day in 2012. The policies under discussion during this election make it imperative that Latinos take a more active role in the democratic process that will shape the future of their community and of the country at large.

In this powerful PSA that’s playing nationwide on TV Azteca, actor Edward James Olmos activates our call to action to reach approximately 43 million people, or 89% of the Latino population in the U.S.

While this PSA airs nationwide, we are building a massive voter engagement campaign specific to our community at home. We will saturate Latino neighborhoods with this nonpartisan, apolitical message of voter empowerment.
