DES MOINES - The Latino Vote Iowa caucus campaign will host a caucus training Sunday, Nov. 8 at Iowa State University.

The training is from 1 to 2:30 p.m. in the Gallery Room at Memorial Union. LULAC will partner with students from Iowa State for the training.  

LULAC Iowa has begun the first-ever statewide caucus outreach and education campaign to the Latino community. Additional trainings will be held throughout Iowa during the remainder of the year to educate and prepare volunteers.

“We want our community to understand the caucus process and to be comfortable with that process. It is our democratic right. We want our people to know that you don’t have to be a party insider in order to participate,” said Joe Enriquez Henry, president of Council 307 and National LULAC Vice President of the Midwest.

LULAC wants to encourage 10,000 to 20,000 Latinos to participate in the caucuses. About 200,000 Iowans are expected to participate in the 2016 Iowa Caucuses, both the Democratic and Republican caucuses.

LULAC Political Director Christian Ucles will lead the training on Sunday. Participants will learn about the caucuses, the differences between the Republican and Democratic caucuses, and how to participate.
