Awash in the Mainstream: Latino Politics in the 1996 Elections

By Rodolfo O. de la Garza; Louis DeSipio | Go to book overview
they rely on self-reporting of citizenship status, registration, and voting. Because of this self-reporting, they undoubtedly overestimate the actual levels. The Census Bureau does not verify the self-reported voting, nor do they have current estimates of levels of overreporting for the population as a whole or Latinos. A study of Latinos who reported in a 1997 survey that they had voted in 1996 (a longer period after the election than the CPS) found that Latinos in three states overreported that they had actually voted (by between 37 and 47 percent; Tomás Rivera Policy Institute 1998).
