Midday Sunday: Votería!

(FOX 11) Sunday's program looked at Votería! the Southwest Voter Registration Education Project's effort to increase voter turn out for the Los Angeles Board of Education election.

Votería! is loosely patterned after loterías which are very common in Latin America. Everyone in LAUSD District 5 who voted on May 19 was entered in the lottery drawing. The grand prize was $25,000 in cash.

Sunday's guests included Anotonio González, SVREP president and Mario Solís-Marich, the Media Coordinator. The Southwest Voter Registration Education Project's website is at svrep.org

Helping to analyze Latino voting in Southern California will be Octavio Pescador from UCLA's Paulo Freire Institute, paulofreireinstitute.org.
