College Democrats at Iowa State University
The College Democrats are a direct route for our fellow students to engage with politics. We instill values of environmental, racial, and economic justice, encourage young people to participate in the American political process, and provide opportunities to work on Democratic campaigns. We also serve as a place to discuss current events, vent about politics, and meet some like-minded people! The fall semester will focus on the November election! We will be doing everything we can to elect democrats up and down the ballot and turn Iowa from a purple to a blue state. This means meeting candidates, door knocking, calling voters, handing out flyers, designing posters, and hosting events! It’ll be a crazy, but very gratifying time. In the words of our Communications Director, Abby, "election season is such chaotic fun.” Democratic candidates, for every Ames race, are listed below. The spring semester will focus on special projects, demonstrations, and lobbying. Projects in the past have included changing the university's student IDs to be compliant in elections and adding voter registration to the move-in process. We'll prepare to have a day on the hill where we'll support an issue of our choosing in Des Moines. The College Democrats is an official chapter of the College and Young Democrats of Iowa, which itself is co-chartered through College Democrats of America and Young Democrats of America.
