Samantha Bayne is the Iowa Director of Campus Election Engagement Project for Iowa Campus Compact. She is also a junior studying Political Science, Law, Politics, and Society, and Philosophy at Drake University in Des Moines, IA. Samantha is very passionate about dialogue, higher education, and voter registration, so she has loved working with colleges and universities across Iowa on election engagement. Samantha brought non-partisan discourse programs to her campus and interned for a nonpartisan voting rights organization as a first-year, and she later used that experience as the Student Services Senator in Drake’s student government as a sophomore. Samantha also coordinated a Voter Engagement Summit in a partnership with the Iowa Secretary of State’s office in April 2018. During the 2018 election cycle, she oversaw 13 student fellows at campuses across Iowa and launched the Iowa Voting Challenge in collaboration with the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge. Samantha is working for Iowa Campus Compact through a grant from the Campus Election Engagement Project to support student voter engagement.
