WASHINGTON – With the November 4th election just days
away, the Migration Policy Institute is providing election profiles
online that examine voter registration by country of birth. The
fact sheets provide breakdowns for foreign-born citizens in each
state and the size of their vote during the 2004 general election.
election profiles also outline the size and growth of the foreign-born
population (citizen and non-citizen) as a share of each state’s
total population, and provide voter breakdowns by ethnicity.
Election fact sheets for all 50 states
and the District of Columbia are available online at: www.migrationpolicy.org/voter_factsheets.php.
findings are based on data from the Census Bureau’s 2006
American Community Survey; the Federal Election Commission, the
Migration Policy Institute Data Hub and the Pew Hispanic Center.
more state-by-state information on the foreign born, including
income, workforce, education, language, demographic and country
of origin data, please visit the MPI
