The Most Powerful Person in America

By Maria Elena Duron

Multicultural Networking Editor

The right to vote is a fundamental human right. However, this right is not fully enforced by millions of individuals all over the world. There must be so many reasons why people chose not to register or even vote. But one thing’s for sure, they’re missing out their opportunity to be heard and to become a part of the decision-making process. As a result, there is this probability that the wrong official is put in the office. To prevent this from happening, more and more organizations are born to influence people to exercise their right to vote.

Recently, Nuestra America 2008 launched the search for The Most Powerful Person in America to help the non-voting Latinos exercise their right to vote. Now, who is the most powerful person in America? What can that person do? The Most Powerful Person in America is not just a contest but most importantly, it is a national voter registration drive between July 4th and July 18th. Nuestra America is in search of that person who can get as much friends and family members to register to vote and pass it on by Power Ranking. Adam Alonso, the executive director of Nuestra America said, “If one person can get his/her family and friends to vote, he/she can impact a local election. If these friends get their family and friends to vote, they can impact a Congressional election. If those friends get their family and friends to vote they can impact who the next President of the United States will be.”

Anyone can register in the website but this campaign is geared towards the American Latino community. What’s good about this registration drive is that when you register, you will be asked to choose a stand on various issues like foreign, military, domestic social, economic, and immigration policies. Then, it will automatically match your choices to the political candidate who has if not the same, the most matches or similarities to your picks. Isn’t that smart? So aside from increasing the political influence of the American Latino population, Nuestra America is also educating them about the national issues and the candidates’ stand on these matters.

So what’s in store for The Most Powerful Person in America? The one with the highest ranking between July 4th and 18th received a new Apple iPhone 3G. You can see the winners on their website, The person with the most number of family members and friends who registers to vote and joins Nuestra America wins. Members get extra points if their family members or friends pass it on to other people and get them to join.

Nuestra America aims to register as many American Latinos, educate them, and make sure that their voices are heard in the upcoming election. This organization is not supporting any candidate in particular. They just knew that the booming Hispanic population is promising especially in the political arena and that this community could actually make a change. Nuestra America has sure created opportunities and headaches to both political parties. Although there are no reports of outreach activities for minority populations, the organization will be canvassing sporting and cultural events, college campuses, and beaches throughout the summer to educate and register more voters. More information is available through their website,
