Everyday nearly 12,000 young Americans turn 18, making millennials the largest age group in the country. Together with iAmerica, Mi Familia Vota, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), Entravision Communications, and Chicago Votes, DEL Records engaged eligible young voters on the airwaves and through a major social media campaign. Community groups registered Latino and AAPI students in nearly 16 high schools across 8 key states.

“Latino millennials make up for nearly half of the record 27.3 million Latinos eligible to vote in 2016. We have the political power to silence the haters but only if we get out and vote. Let’s flex our political muscle this November and show these haters who’s boss.”
“I encourage my fans to join me, register to vote and meet me in the polls this November,” states Latin Grammy nominee, Regulo Caro.
The “Stop the Hate and Vote” campaign registered young voters in Florida, Nevada, Colorado, California, Wisconsin, Illinois, Arizona and Texas.
