Profile America — Sunday, October 5th. National Hispanic Heritage Month continues, and much media prominence given to this 54 million-strong community centers on the growing heft of the Hispanic vote in elections. Already 17 percent of America's population, it is projected to number nearly 129 million by the year 2060. In the 2012 election, over 11 million Hispanics, or 48 percent of those eligible, cast ballots. This is a decline from 2008, when just under 50 percent of eligible Hispanics voted. But the 2012 figure did surpass the percentages in the 2000 and 2004 elections, which reached 45 and 47percent, respectively. Nearly 62 percent of the eligible public cast their ballots in the 2012 elections, down from nearly 64 percent in 2008.
