Abstract:

In this paper, we analyze survey data of registered Latino voters collected after the 2000 elections to assess the voting propensities of naturalized Latinos in the five states with the largest Latino populations (California, New York, Texas, Florida, and Illinois). Respondents' reports of voting have been validated with local voting authorities. We present three sets of analysis. First, we test a multivariate model of voting propensity among Latinos registered to vote that allows us to analyze whether there is an independent impact of source of U.S. citizenship relative to other individual-level characteristics that have long been shown to be associated with the likelihood of voting. Second, we assess who among the naturalized is more likely to vote. This analysis will give us the opportunity to prognosticate about future patterns of electoral behavior among the naturalized and get to the question of whether past patterns of lower-than-average voting among the naturalized will likely continue in the future. Finally, we focus more closely on immigrants who naturalized in the recent past to test whether naturalized citizens' evaluations of their reasons for naturalizing shape the likelihood of voting once naturalized. Specifically, we assess whether immigrants who naturalized for civic reasons, who naturalized to retain government services, or who naturalized out of concerns for the treatment of immigrants in the United States are any more likely to vote than are those for whom these issues were of less concern.
