Miller: Latinos flex their voting muscle in Illinois

But 20 years later, things have changed in a big way. According to exit polling, 12 percent of Illinois voters last week were Latino, which is pretty close to the 16 percent of Illinois’ overall Latino population.
That high participation contributed to many of last week’s stunning electoral surprises.
