The League of United Latin American Citizens of Muscatine (LULAC) has announced that there will be a bilingual caucus location for Spanish speaking Muscatine voters who want to participate in the first-in-the-nation caucuses on February 3rd, 2020.
The Iowa Democratic Party, in an effort to make it easier to vote, has allowed remote caucus sites to be established to accommodate the needs of different communities across Iowa. LULAC Muscatine’s application for a Spanish caucus location in Muscatine was approved by the party.
“Muscatine, Iowa has one of the largest Latino populations in the State of Iowa and the approval of a Spanish speaking caucus means that members of the community will be able to participate in the caucus process and have their voices heard” said Nick Salazar, LULAC Iowa State Director.
Those who plan to caucus must be registered to vote and can either register before the caucus or at the caucus location the day of the election as long as they bring a valid ID. LULAC encourages people to arrive early to get signed in. Those who arrive late will not be allowed to vote.
