Latinos Share The Moving And Inspiring Reasons They Voted

These folks understand the importance of their voice.

Latinos flexed their muscle at the ballot box during early voting in states like Florida and Nevada, pointing to a possible surge in turnout at the polls on Election Day.

While it’s still unknown how much of an impact the Latino vote will have on Tuesday’s results, HuffPost Latino Voices wanted to know more about what inspired members of our community to exercise their right to vote. 

We asked Twitter followers to share their reasons for voting and any photos with the hashtags #ThisLatinoVotedBecause and #ThisLatinaVotedBecause. The response was not only overwhelming but inspiring. 

Take a look at some of the most powerful reasons these Latinos decided to vote on Election Day. But grab a box of tissues first, you’ll need it!
