Votemos.us is a Spanish language portal that proposes a vote in the US presidential elections for the millions of (il)legal Mexicans who currently live and work in the United States.
Visitors can register with the site, vote, write an opinion on the elections, read otherís views and react to it.
"The goal of the project is not only to point to the fact that within the US border lives a very active Mexican population that contributes to the national economy and is not allowed to vote, but also to present a repository of information and links to the Latin American community (within and beyond the U.S.) concerning the US national elections and to establish a public space to share their views. "
More than one in eight people in the United States are of Hispanic origin.
In 2002, there were 37.4 million Latinos
