Ways to support the campaign and the Democratic party

 

On Campus:

The Democrats Club is just beginning its activities this year because of a late start but is still active in the elections.

Sophomore Jake Masin, president of the club, campaigns for voter registration every Friday and is involved with Get Out The Vote, a canvassing effort that also focuses on collecting voter information and trends. Also, four to five club members actively call voters at the Obama Headquarters in McMinnville.

Masin said registering to vote and staying on top of the elections are important parts of participating.

“Just make sure to be informed,” he said. “Some people didn’t even know the difference between Hillary and Obama at the end of the primaries.”

Ways to support the campaign and the Republican party

 

On Campus: 

“I’m pretty happy with what we have,” senior Josh Planton, president of the Republicans Club, said. “We have a committed group of around 10. I am hoping to get more involved, though. We are trying to broaden our reach through community service.”

Planton said he suggests students contact their particular headquarters for more information on how to become involved in activities such as
creating signs and making phone calls.

“Do it with friends the first time,” Planton said. “This will help if you don’t feel comfortable doing it by yourself.”

The Republicans Club will staff a voting registration booth at Linfield Oct. 14. 

On Oct. 10, Republican candidates from Yamhill County will talk to students in Riley Student Center, room 201, at 7:30 p.m.
