USC ANNENBERG MEDIA (LOS ANGELES) -- Many young Latinx voters are already feeling that sense of responsibility during this election. Bailie Ibarra, a Latinx San Francisco State University senior who is studying Political Science, voted for the first time during a presidential election in Texas last week.

In places like Texas, the Latinx community feels that we need to vote, Ibarra said.

“You have that contrast of the people who are very against our community pushing against our growing numbers so it feels like we need to voice that we’re here and that we’re a force, especially when it comes to voting,” Ibarra said.
