Utilizing her expertise and influence was the logical next step for True The Vote in our mission to promote free and fair elections for all.”
Engelbrecht continued: “It’s unfortunate to witness widespread attempts to demagogue the greater election integrity movement along ethnic lines. The facts are clear – voter fraud is a serious issue within the Latino community. Too often do we hear of intimidation, coercion and bribery of new voters. It isn’t surprising to learn that 71 percent of Latinos support voter ID requirements, according to PEW Research. Voto Honesto 2012 will certainly help increase support for the measure.”
