Hispanics and the U.S. Political System focuses on the political manifestations of Hispanics in the United States. It addresses the roles that Latinos have played in our political system, both in the past and present.

The general election in 2000 marked an era of increased influence and awareness by Hispanics in politics both as voters and politicians.
