Adding to the “party” atmosphere will be a donkey
named Boomer. Students who aren’t registered to vote will be able to do
so at the club’s tables, as well, said Martin Moore, the club’s

give students a chance to ask questions one-on-one and learn more about
the position of Democratic candidates in our state.”

anniversary, also will host Washington State Democratic Party Chairman
Paul Berendt at a birthday party at 7 p.m. Sept. 16 at the college’s
