This week might be our hardest crushing on vote so far! First up is J.Lo’s pick, William Levy.
Maybe you didn’t know who this gorgeous Cuban actor was before, but Levy was lucky enough to be chosen by La Lopez for her new music video “I’m Into You” which premiered this morning on the Today show. Telenovela fans should recognize him as the galan from their favorite shows.

The Mexican American actor is in this weeks #1 movie Battle Los Angeles, and is starring in the upcoming drama Lincoln Lawyer alongside Matthew McConaughey and John Leguizamo.
The American Idol contestant is part Puerto Rican and has a voice that makes the ladies swoon. As Jennifer Lopez said, he ‘makes a girl from the Bronx love country music.’

This weekend brought us the end of awards season, and with that Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz's first public appearance together since the birth of their baby, and let us just say, fatherhood look good on Javier. We thought we'd take a minute to appreciate all the dapper gentlemen who were out and about and making news this past week:
Javier Bardem: This proud new papa looked like a old-school gentlemen at the 2011 Oscar Awards. Swoon...

Are you freaking out as much as we all are? It seems like this election has been going on FOREVER and now, finally, we are at the end of the race. A nervous anticipation grips our country as the world eagerly waits to learn who will be the next President of the United States.

You've certainly heard about ACORN, but have you been keeping tabs on the voter suppression techniques that are being exploited to keep Latinos out of the booths? A perfect example of this can be found in New Mexico, a state that is approximately 40% Latino, giving it the honor of being the most "Latin" state of the union. Among those 1 million Latino residents, almost 70% will be supporting Barack Obama come Nov. 4th. This may be scaring some Republican operatives in the state who have launched a campaign of voter intimidation.
