Ethnic voter registration numbers come from 2014 voter registration lists that have been merged by a computer with an “ethnic dictionary of common last names” indicating the percentage of Spanish-surname and Asian-surname registered voters within each district.

There are no surname lists that have been recognized as predictive of persons who are African American.  

Gary Brown and Paul Mitchell with Political Data, Inc. compiled the ethnic registration data.
