The Republican Party of Los Angeles County is asking supporters to use the weekend holiday to jump-start a new push to get Hispanic voters.

RPLAC sent out an email to backers today asking that they each register five people to vote on Cinco de Mayo.

“There are celebrations all over LA County where you can reach out and register new voters,” the email noted.” If each club and volunteer commits to registering 5 people on May 5th, we could grow our Hispanic base by hundreds!”

Those who submit Republican registration cards dated May 5 can turn them into RPLAC for a $5 bounty each. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) last year vetoed a Democratic bill that would have prohibited paying canvassers on a per-registration basis.

RPLAC is also in the process of forming a new Hispanic outreach team.

President Obama’s campaign has already begun airing Spanish-language ads in swing states.
