Voto Latino wants the Latino community – especially young Latinos – to vote. And the organization represented by celebrities has aligned itself with the Declare Yourself campaign to create telenovela-style publicity announcements emphasizing the power of the Latino vote in the United States.

Actress Rosario Dawson is one of Voto Latino’s founders, and as a Hispanic-American, she wants to secure the future of our community. Her efforts coincide with those of Declare Yourself, which is fighting to get all 18-year-olds to the polls this election season.

Actors like Wilmer Valderrama, Nick Zano, Tony Plana (Ugly Betty (ABC)) and Craig’s List founder Craig Newmark will join Dawson, 28, in creating a mini-telenovela to raise awareness about the upcoming presidential election, which will target the seven million Latinos between ages 18 and 29 in the United States.
