LULAC Iowa, with the support of National LULAC, has begun the first-ever statewide Iowa Presidential Caucus project - Latino Vote Iowa!
Our goal is to mobilize between 10,000 to 20,000 Latino voters in the state to participate in the Iowa Presidential Caucuses on Feb. 1, 2016. Historically, about 200,000 Iowa voters participate in both the Democractic and Republican Caucuses.
Our grassroots campaign will include four field staff and a communications director. LULAC National Vice President of the Midwest Joe Enriquez Henry will lead the statewide mobilization.
The Latino Vote Iowa project will draw upon a pool of approximately 50,000 registered Latino voters statewide. Our efforts will focus on mobilizing Latino voters in the following counties with the highest percentage of Latino voters: Black Hawk, Buena Vista, Crawford, Dallas, Johnson, Linn, Louisa, Marshall, Muscatine, Polk, Pottawattamie, Scott, Wapello and Woodbury.
This outreach effort will reach more than 700 of the 1,740 precincts in Iowa. The state will be divided into four areas, and staff will be assigned to specific counties and have goals in order to achieve turnout on Feb. 1, 2016.
Our field staff will meet with voters in their neighborhoods, and conduct caucus trainings and door-to-door canvassing in order to discuss the importance of caucus participation and key issues that impact our community. Caucus trainings have already begun and will continue throughout the state. Most sessions will be scheduled during the weekends.
If you'd like for us to hold a caucus training in your community, or if you'd like to volunteer, please contact Joe Enriquez Henry at 515.208.7312 (email@example.com); or Melissa Walker at 515.681.7731 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
With YOUR help, we can do our part and make a difference in our community!
