Hispanic or Latino residents as voting bloc

As Boston's mayoral race gains momentum, the quest to capture the Latino vote remains fraught with challenges. Latinos represent the largest group in Boston public schools, but many cannot vote because they are too young, not citizens, or are here illegally. Where Boston's Hispanic or Latino residents live, by neighborhood, according to the 2010 Census:

  • Less than 5%
  • 5% to 9.99%
  • 10% to 19.99%
  • More than 20%
