This report examines the importance of environmental issues for Latino voters. Over the past few years, Latino, conservation and environmental groups have all identified the importance of environmental issues for Latinos living in the United States. A 2015 New York Times article noted that Latinos demonstrate overwhelming concern for the environment. A 2014 research brief prepared by Latino Decisions for the Hispanic Access Foundation reported that clean air and water, preserving public lands, climate change, and promoting clean energy are all matters of concern for the rapidly growing Latino population.

Though Latinos frequently cite environmental concerns as a top priority, relatively sparse information is available that connects their concern for the environment with their voting behavior – until now. Do Latinos’ strong concern for environmental issues line up with final vote outcomes for environmental related causes and issues?
