The Pew Hispanic Center has released a new interactive map of the Latino electorate, illustrating the percentage of eligible Latino voters by state.

Moving the cursor over each state brings up details, including how many Latino voters there are and what percentage of the overall electorate they make up. California ranks first, with close to 5.4 million eligible Latino voters based on the available data, which was taken from the 2008 American Community Survey.

The center recently released the results of a survey on Latino voter attitudes, which showed strong support for Democratic candidates but weak voter motivation.
