Polk County Democrats Hold ‘Job Fair-Like’ Event for Youth Voters, Get Visited by Candidate
WEST DES MOINES, Iowa -- On Saturday, representatives for almost every Democratic candidate had a stand at Raccoon River Park in West Des Moines, ready to make their pitch to youth voters. “We really wanted it to be that open, easy, personable interaction, that face to face that you don’t necessarily get when you go to a rally or an event that feels a little more staged and prepared,” said Ashly Banta, vice chair of Polk County Democrats.
