“Using a peer to peer model, we knocked on the doors of more than 1,000 young voters in youth dense precincts around Cal State Fullerton, encouraging them to vote for Democrats all the way down the ticket.” said Nick Anas, Chair of Orange County Young Democrats. “We went door to door in the very places where young democrats live and hang out, places that are too often ignored by traditional campaigns.”Â
Also recognized for her accomplishments at the collegiate level, Lauren Lee, from the UCI Young Democrats, received the California College Democrats (CCD) Woman of the Year Award. Lee was also elected as the CCD’s Vice President of Membership.
Chapman Democrats’ own Doug Arseneault was elected Region Director for CYD Region 6 – Orange County and the Inland Empire.
