DAVENPORT - The Latino Vote Iowa campaign will canvass neighborhoods in Davenport this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
The League of United Latin American Citizens of Iowa is leading the Latino Vote Iowa campaign. Staff and volunteers will canvass Davenport precincts 31, 32, 33, 34 and 54 near St. Mary’s Catholic Church from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 3 to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Workers also will go door to doo on Friday, but those times have not yet been announced.
This is the first-ever largescale outreach to the Latino community for a general election. LULAC of Iowa broke new ground earlier this year when the civil rights organization led a successful campaign to draw a record number of Latinos to participate in the Iowa Caucuses.
This is a nonpartisan campaign. Canvassers will not wear or distribute materials that identify any candidate or party. Registered voters will receive information about how to vote and how to register, voter eligibility and how to handle problems at the polls. All printed materials will be available in English and Spanish.
The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) is the nation's largest and oldest civil rights volunteer-based organization that empowers Hispanic Americans and builds strong Latino communities. Headquartered in Washington, D.C. with 1,000 councils around the United States and Puerto Rico, LULAC's programs, services and advocacy address the most important issues for Latinos, meeting critical needs of today and the future.
