Anchors Jorge Ramos and Maria Elena Salinas will host coverage of this year's presidential election between Republican challenger Mitt Romney and President Obama from Miami tonight.

Lourdes Meluza will report live from Romney campaign headquarters in Boston, while Luis Megid will cover the Obama campaign in Chicago.

Univision will also stream its coverage live on its Youtube channel.

Fox News Latino will also have Spanish-language coverage of the election. Rick Sanchez will anchor election results and commentary of the Fox News Latino website starting at 9pm EST.

Both campaigns have actively courted the Hispanic vote this year.

Latinos are one of the fastest growing ethnic groups in the country, and nearly 50,000 Latinos become eligible to vote in the United States every year.

While Romney has made overtures to the Hispanic community, including references to his father's birth in an American community in Mexico, Latino support has largely stuck with Obama.

A popular program initiated by the Obama administration defers deportation and provides work permits for young undocumented immigrants who were brought to this country as children.

Obama also supports the DREAM Act, a bill that would provide a path to citizenship for those same immigrants, that has languished in Congress amidst fierce Republican opposition.

Romney has said that he would end the deportation deferment program if elected, though he provided no specifics about what would happen to those people already affiliated with it.

Obama's strong Latino support in swing states like Nevada, Colorado and Florida may give him the edge he needs to win those states and secure a victory.
