mañana vote
 n.— «Experts say low rates of citizenship, combined with a large population under the legal voting age of 18, have kept Latinos from exerting more influence on U.S. politics. The National Journal has dubbed it “the mañana vote,” using the Spanish word for “tomorrow.”» —“Latinos’ clout may be crucial” by Toby Eckert, Jerry Kammer in Yuma, Ariz. San Diego Union-Tribune (California) Oct. 3, 2004.
