The 2020 Iowa Caucuses
Let your voice be heard. As Iowan’s, this is our opportunity to have a real impact on the 2020 Presidential race for the White House. It’s also our responsibility to let the politicians know that our vote should never be taken for granted.
This election cycle GoGuide Magazine ran forum in which we offered each campaign an opportunity to respond to questions of interest to the LGBTQ+ communities, friends, and allies. Every major Democratic candidate was contacted. A few notable campaigns did not respond or were unable to complete the task of scheduling the interview. I would encourage all voters to give special attention to those candidates that decided to join the forum. These are the candidates that were willing to put their support for the community in writing. Supporting one of these candidates sends a strong signal to all that nobody’s vote is guaranteed.
What you need to know
The 2020 Iowa Caucuses will be held on February 3rd, 2020. Iowa is the first in the nation to be counted. The Iowa Caucuses are the responsibility of each Party to organize. Each Party must organize the caucuses from top to bottom, including recruiting and training precinct captains, securing caucus locations, and certifying the results.

It’s campaign season, and it’s getting competitive.
If you live in Iowa and follow your Facebook or Twitter feeds, you have probably noticed the change in tone as we get closer to the Iowa Caucuses and the New Hampshire primary. It’s fair to imagine this highly competitive discourse to continue to ramp up as we get closer to the November 2020 elections.
As Americans, we enjoy our free speech. However, free speech protection goes only so far. You do not have the right to incite rights or to encourage people to harm other people. Let’s keep it, “Iowa Nice.” Promote your candidate. Encourage others to participate. That’s how our Democracy works best. GG
