KMEX-TV AND AT&T PROMOTE HISPANIC VOTER REGISTRATION

 KMEX-TV AND AT&T PROMOTE HISPANIC VOTER REGISTRATION
 LOS ANGELES, Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- KMEX-TV,


Channel 34/Univision and AT&T have teamed up to simplify voter registration for Los Angeles Hispanics. For the month of September, AT&T has established a toll-free 800 telephone number (800-543-4535) to provide voter registration information for Los Angeles residents. Public service announcements, produced by and aired on KMEX-TV, will publicize the number.
 The bilingual hotline number will be open through the close of registration for the Nov. 3 elections. Bilingual operators will mail registration forms to new voters and answer consumer questions about the registration and citizenship process.
 "We are pleased to have AT&T join us in providing the large and growing Hispanic community with the opportunity to realize fully their right to vote," said Michael G. Martinez, general manager of KMEX-TV.
 The partnership supports the efforts of the Southwest Voter Registration Education Project to enhance the political empowerment of the Latino community. The project is designed to increase the number of registered Hispanic voters through voter registration and citizenship drives so as to strengthen the political voice of the Hispanic community.
 Martinez noted that in the state of California, voter turnout has declined 30 percent, while Hispanic voter turnout has increased 28.9 percent. During the California primary in 1988, 71 percent of Hispanics in Los Angeles County voted.
 "It is imperative that everyone understands the responsibility of voter participation in our democracy," said Martinez. "This is a heartening example of good citizens, corporate and individual alike, working together for the betterment of society."
 KMEX-TV, Channel 34 is the leading Spanish language television station in Southern California.
