Some campus venues will serve as caucus sites

Participants from seven of the 20 Ames precincts will convene in campus locations for Iowa's first-in-the-nation presidential caucus on Monday, Feb. 3.

Registered Republicans and Democrats eligible to vote in the 2020 general election can participate in their party's caucus. Individuals can register or change party affiliation at their caucus sites by completing a voter registration form. On-site registration opens at 5:30 p.m. for Democrats and 6:30 p.m. for Republicans. Early arrival is recommended. Participants will not be admitted when caucusing begins at 7 p.m.

The campus venues hosting Democratic caucus groups include:

  • Fisher Theater
  • Hansen Agriculture Student Learning Center
  • Memorial Union (Sun Room and Great Hall)
  • Scheman Building (Room 167 and Room 240)
  • Stephens Auditorium

All Story County Republicans will meet in the Oakwood Road Community Center (2400 Oakwood Rd., Ames).

Student attendance, resources

University policies and state law provide guidance for employee political activities. Instructors with Monday night classes are reminded to make attendance decisions based on the excused absence policy

The Carrie Chapman Catt Center for Women and Politics emailed caucus details to students this week. The center developed a student FAQ that includes information about voter registration, caucusing and elections (in person and absentee).
