Tulsa Hispanic Group To Work To Get Immigrants To Register To Vote

Updated:
A Tulsa Hispanic group wants to recruit new voters out from the ranks of immigrants - by having them registered to vote.

Tulsa's "American Dream Coalition" wants to make sure all new citizens do the paperwork so they can vote. The group estimates 5,000 immigrants in Tulsa are now eligible to vote - but haven't registered.

The group wants them voting so they can have a say on immigration policy. Rev. Victor Orta with the American Dream Coalition: "Those of you who are qualified to become citizens, become a citizen and you can help us do something about it, you can, your vote is going to count, so become a citizen and vote."

The group plans a series of events to identify immigrants and help them register.

It's part of a national effort to register one million new Hispanic voters in time for the 2008 election.
