  • 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Jan. 26, there will be a roundtable discussion where representatives from several presidential campaigns will be available to answer questions and hear about issues that affect the Latino community. The discussion will take place in The Rogalski Center, St. Ambrose University, 518 W. Locust St. in Davenport.  

All trainings are either conducted in English and Spanish or interpreters are available. Attendees will learn how the caucuses work and how to find their caucus location.

Other efforts to reach registered voters continue through mailings, phone calls and door-to-door canvassing in neighborhoods throughout the state. Several thousand Latinos have already indicated they will participate in the 2016 Iowa Caucuses.

The League of United Latin American Citizens of Iowa has reached out to more than 43,000 registered Latino voters in Iowa to inform them about the Feb. 1 Iowa Caucuses. In addition, LULAC has tutorials on how the Democratic and Republican caucuses differ, and a listing of caucus sites for both parties on its website: www.IowaLULAC.org.

LULAC wants between 10,000 to 20,000 Latinos to participate in the caucuses. About 200,000 Iowans are expected to participate in both the Democratic and Republican caucuses.

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.
