    Texas Latino Voters

    The state of Texas currently has the nation’s second largest Hispanic population, with more than 3.8 million eligible Hispanic voters. An estimated 44% of Latinos in Texas are eligible to vote.

    Recent data confirms that the majority of eligible Hispanic voters in Texas are considerably young. About 3 out of 10 Hispanic eligible voters are between the ages of 18 to 29. 

    While two thirds of Hispanic eligible voters in Texas live in owner-occupied homes, there is an unfortunate educational gap. 27% of eligible Hispanic voters in Texas have not completed high school, greater than the rate for all Latino voters in the U.S.
