Hispanic and Latino Americans are a complex and diverse electorate with the power to influence the outcome of elections across the United States. An effective and culturally relevant approach is the difference between resonating and connecting with voters — or not. Authenticity, attention to detail, and culturally-rooted design are key for maximum impact with this audience.
These insights are supported by recent research conducted on behalf of the United States Postal Service, which included both quantitative and qualitative components — a national survey and focus groups with voters as well as a survey and interviews with political consultants.*
The research reveals that direct mail carries more clout with Hispanic and Latino Americans, yet campaigns may be underestimating direct mail’s potential in reaching this target audience.
