Get Out the Vote Coordinator 

James Dirth

The Get Out the Vote Director this year is James Dirth; he is a sophomore studying Political
Science and Sociology. He comes from Naperville, Illinois, one of the larger Chicago suburbs.

James chose UW-L for its beautiful campus and for the town of La Crosse, its academic integrity and
its relatively small size with an active community. James is currently acting Co-Chair of the UW-L College
Democrats, Vice President of the Political Science and Public Administration Association, and has an
undergraduate research grant from the Political Science department.

James’ goal as GOTV Director is to oversee and help generate a large student turnout rate for
November’s election. He is working with various other groups on campus that are also looking to help
increase the student turnout rate. He believes in the importance of voting, especially for students, who
will be the future leaders and inheritors of this country. That is why he wanted to get involved in
Student Association; the importance of getting involved in all forms of governance is a vital aspect to
prepare one’s self for the road ahead of them.
