Cameron County to Provide Ballots in Spanish for Voters

CAMERON COUNTY - According to reports, the U.S. government is ordering that 248 counties provide bilingual ballots to Hispanics.

That number is down almost 20% since the year 2000 when the government ordered nearly 300 counties to provide the same ballots. Cameron County's Elections Administrator Rogelio Ortiz doesn't anticipates any change for Valley residents and said, "I don't see a change in language requirements on the ballots for Cameron county. The people down here are predominately Hispanic, so we are going to have both English and Spanish on the ballot and I don't see it ever changing."
