Iowa Caucus Night
It was crowded! Our caucus had 66% of eligible registered voters show. That is a high % as I live next to a Drake University which has a law school. Although the University is closed, many students came back at their own expense to participate, so my precinct is a bit high on the number attending. These photos are to celebrate my daughter's first chance to participate. She will be old enough to vote in November, so that made her eligible to caucus. One of the photos is of my caucus-and the others are of my daughter and her friend in their off color shirts. One is a Democrat, and one is a Republican. They fought, argued, and just were downright self righteous about their choices. My daughter's candidate won, her boyfriend's finished in a not so good place.
My daughter and I will both be delegates to the County conventions, and have both been elected to serve on committees. I first started working for candidates when I was very young, and am so proud that she cares enough about our country to continue to work for candidates and her beliefs!
