Due October 9th, 2018 - The Latino vote has become more impactful than ever when it comes to deciding elections. In Georgia alone, there are now over 240,000 Latinx voters, and those voters are shown to be far more civically engaged when compared to the national average. In fact, Latinas in GA led the way in November 2016 with a 73% voter participation rate!

Latinos in Georgia vote. All it takes is a little push! That’s why in anticipation for the upcoming general elections in November, GALEO is launching a Get Out the Vote video contest. The contest is designed to help increase awareness about the upcoming elections in November and to energize voters to go out to the polls!

Here are some useful GOTV tips that can be incorporated into the videos:
 - Early voting begins on October 15th through November 2nd
 - You can verify the status of your voter registration or your voting precincts at any time by visiting: https://www.mvp.sos.ga.gov/MVP/mvp.do
 - In Gwinnett County, precincts MUST provide assistance in Spanish.
 - In the rest of Georgia, anyone that doesn’t speak English can bring a translator to assist them to assist in voting

GALEO challenges everyone to record a short, creative, and engaging video that highlights why it’s so important to vote! Videos may be in English, Spanish or both.

To be considered for participation, all entries must:
 - Be nonpartisan in nature
 - Be published on a social media platform like Facebook, Instagram, or YouTube and use the hashtags #GALatinoVote #iamGALEO #EstamosAqui
