45 million people speak Spanish as a first or second language in the United States. To put that figure into perspective, the population of Spain is 47.2 million, meaning the United States has a Spanish-speaking community rivaling Spain in size. As such, it has become increasingly important to have more tools to enable American Spanish speakers. .VOTO offers one such tool by providing a TLD specific to providing credible voting, election, and polling information and services in Spanish, within the U.S.
There is no specific procedure related to the registration of a domain name.
.voto domain names are allocated on a "first come, first served" basis.
