Our right to vote is at risk. In their last session, the Iowa legislature decided to pass the controversial voter ID law, which unfortunately erects more obstacles beyond just IDs for Iowans (including college students) to cast their ballots. In every campaign she has worked for, Deidre has a track record of increasing turnout and registering new voters. She will work with our county officials to ensure that people have the knowledge and resources to overcome these new obstacles.
