Abstract

Heading into this week’s midterm elections, the Republican Party has been widely tipped to maintain or increase its seats in the House of Representatives, and to retake the Senate. Yuri Gabriel Beltrán Miranda takes a close look at the role of Latin American voters in these elections, writing that due to their geographic concentration in areas such as Colorado, the Latino vote has little significance for House elections. With this underrepresentation in mind, he argues that the U.S. should consider adopting proportional representation, as its neighbor to the south, Mexico, has done.
