About the Author:

Elaine Rodriquez, Ph.D., is a visiting Associate Professor at New Mexico Highlands University. She is the primary investigator on a project examining the civic and political levels of engagement of "soon-to-be" naturalized citizens.

Review:

The present study, The National Voter Registration Act: Impact and Implications for Latino and Non-Latino Communities, is an important new case study on the impact of the NVRA in Arizona, particularly as it applies to Latinos in that state. The study also contributes new insight to the learning curve regarding procedural problems in administratively implementing NVRA-type reforms. A corollary contribution of the work is its application and critique of Rodney Hero's "two-tiered pluralism" theory of Latinos in the American political system, which has heretofore gone unchallenged. In the end, the study offers promise that continued policy initiatives, such as NVRA, are beneficial in enabling the United States to achieve universal suffrage. (Maurilio E. Vigil, Ph.D., Emeritus Professor of Political Science, New Mexico University)

Book Description University Press of America, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book provides an understanding of the role that Latino communities play in American politics. In a country marked by arbitrary and exclusionary electoral practices, minority political participation is central to remedying the inequity of the electoral process. The 1993 National Voter Registration act (NVRA) was enacted to compensate for past exclusionary electoral practices and was designed to equalize the political playing field so that disenfranchised groups could achieve parity. The author contends that, as a result, Latino communities are in a unique position to seize political clout. First, the growing numbers of Latino families in strategic electoral states are a significant proportion of the states population. Second, the young Latino segment is in search of community reassurance. Third, the ever-increasing non-citizen population is demanding the political resources to become a voice for Latino community interests. Finally, Latino special interest groups are effectively conducting grass roots community-based voter registration strategies, including NVRA mail-in voter registration methods.
