Latino Vote


We invite leaders and Latino/Hispanic serving organizations to increase civic engagement and participation for national and local elections.  Each of us is uniquely positioned to help increase Latino/Hispanic participation in this important demonstration of civic engagement.

This year we are proud to once again partner with the National Association of Latino Elected Officials (NALEO) to join the largest one-day national voter registration effort. National Voter Registration Day is September 22, 2020. For more details as to how you can become involved in voter registration efforts, visit:  https://naleo.org/vote/

Latino Community Reports

Each year the Latino Affairs Commission compiles reports on topics relating to Ohio’s Hispanic community. Our reports are designed to educate and facilitate discussion on particular challenges and opportunities facing Hispanic Ohioans. Whenever possible, Latino Community Reports include data specific to state legislator districts and counties. For some Latino Community Reports, however, it isn’t possible to find and cite data at the county or district level. The Ohio Latino Affairs Commission endeavors to be a valuable resource to state government in understanding and serving the Hispanic community.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was created to allow undocumented immigrants who entered the United States before June 15, 2007 as a child under the age of 16 the ability to receive deferred action for a period of two years. DACA recipients have met specific criteria pertaining to education and public safety, with each applicant being handled on a case-by-case basis.

This announcement does not automatically end DACA for anyone. Current DACA documents are valid until the expiration date.

  • Eligible people whose first DACA applications have been filed and are pending should expect that those applications will be approved once for a two-year period but will not be renewed after that.  
  • Eligible people whose renewals are pending should expect that their renewal will be processed and will be valid for two years but will not be renewed after that.  
  • People who have not yet applied to renew but whose DACA expires between September 5, 2017 and March 5, 2018, can apply for renewal one final time as long as that application is received by USCIS before October 5, 2017.  
  • People whose current DACA does not expire until after March 5, 2018, will not be allowed to renew.  
  • Based on the current information released by USCIS, people whose DACA had expired before September 5, 2017 and who have not yet applied to renew their DACA will not be able to apply for renewal.  

High school students will still be allowed to attend public high schools after their DACA expires based on the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Plyler v. Doe.   No one can be required to provide proof of legal status for K-12 education.

Anyone currently working with a DACA Employment Authorization Document (EAD) should be allowed to continue working until the document expires.  Unexpired DACA EADs are valid for new employment, too.  Terminating someone or refusing to hire them because their EAD will exipire in the future is illegal discrimination.  Employers or workers with questions about the law should contact the U.S. Department of Justice Immigrant and Employee Rights Section.
