Some findings of the report include: 

  • Texas saw significant growth among immigrant voters in the last six years. Now, 1 in 9 eligible voters in Texas are immigrants.
     
  • Several swing states have a rapidly growing number of Hispanic voters. Nevada saw the largest increase, with Hispanic voters now making up over 22% of the electorate. 
     
  • Idaho—the fastest growing state by population size this year—also saw the fastest growth in its voting eligible population between 2016 and 2022, jumping 18%.
