“It is a top priority for our news and digital content to be a trusted source of information for voters in English and Spanish across the Chicagoland area,” said Diana Maldonado, Vice President of News for Telemundo Chicago. “With the primary season underway for the 2022 midterm elections, we are thrilled to partner with Telemundo in connecting our community members to the information they need on voter eligibility and registration requirements,” said Arturo Vargas, NALEO Educational Fund Chief Executive Officer. “At least 11.6 million Latinos are projected to cast their ballots in this year’s midterm elections — and this initiative will continue emphasizing to our community the importance of voting and the significance of Latino electoral power when making their voices heard at the ballot box.”
A division of 43 NBC/Telemundo stations in the United States and Puerto Rico is collaborating with Telemundo Network and the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) Educational Fund to host a daylong phone bank dedicated to answering public questions about voter registration. The phone bank will run from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. CST on Tuesday, May 17. Individuals can contact the NALEO Educational Fund’s toll-free hotline at 1-888-839-8682 (888-VE-Y-VOTA) to talk live with multilingual operators who can answer questions about voter registration and give information on help and resources in their region.
