Samantha Bayne is a sophomore studying Political Science, Law, Politics, and Society, and Philosophy at Drake University in Des Moines, IA. Samantha is very passionate about dialogue and voter registration, so she is incredibly excited to begin working on election engagement projects at institutions across Iowa! Samantha brought non-partisan discourse programs to her school and interned for a nonpartisan voting rights organization as a first-year, and she is now using that experience as the Student Services Senator in Drake’s student government. She cannot wait to begin connecting with other higher education institutions and start working on projects to engage students across Iowa in the political process.
Samantha is working for Iowa Campus Compact through a grant from the Campus Election Engagement Project to support student voter engagement.
