UDems Block Walk for Austin Progressive Coalition!

We need your help this weekend! We’re delivering Austin Progressive Coalition endorsements this weekend to remind Austinites to vote and to recommend our (and Central Austin Democrats) endorsed candidates!

We’re just dropping off door hangers, so it’ll be quicker and easier than normal block walks. But we need everyone’s help to get out all of our door hangers!

We’ll be meeting at Littlefield Fountain on Sunday morning. Bring your car if you’ve got one, and if not just bring yourself and we’ll bring the breakfast tacos!

UDems Presents: Professor Bethany Albertson

With early voting upon us, and the election almost over, we’re calling in an expert to break it down for us. Join us in hearing from UT government professor, Bethany Albertson. Her work explores political attitudes and persuasion, and she is particularly interested in emotion, religion in American politics and experimental methods. An expert in political psychology, she’ll be discussing the implications of the 2016 election.

Professor Albertson received her PhD from the University of Chicago. Prior to coming to UT, she was on faculty at the University of Washington and was a pre-doctoral fellow at the Center for the Study of Democratic Politics at Princeton University. At UT, she has been a Donald D. Harrington Fellow, and in 2014, she was awarded the Josefina Paredes Endowed Teaching Award, in recognition for excellence in undergraduate teaching.

We’re excited to welcome such an awesome academic, and we hope you’ll join us. Afterwards we’ll be heading out to Austin’s Pizza as usual.

UDems Presents: Trick or Vote

President Obama said it best himself, “don’t boo, vote!” Join UDems for candy, costumes, and fun photo-ops while we remind folks to early vote! ! If you don’t have a costume, don’t worry! We’ll have fun photo props and a photo frame. So bring a friend and avoid the election day lines!

UDems Presents: Voterama!

This Sunday night, the University Democrats will be camping out in the West Mall, at the foot of the tower so that we can be the first ones in Texas to vote for the Democratic ticket and the first female president of the United States! Show up early and chill with Mayor Adler himself while hanging out with your favorite Democratic club!

Monday is the first day of early voting and we’ll be out there all night hanging out, playing the most AMERICAN game ever (football), enjoying the most AMERICAN food ever (pizza), and watching the best piece of American cinema ever produced (DCOM – My Date with The President’s Daughter.) Come join us for Voterama, its always a ton of fun and there’s no better way to ring in early voting GOTV than an all night party on the West Mall!
