During each election cycle, candidates for local, state and federal office establish platforms and advocate for policy reform. Those platforms and their potential impact are critical to making informed decisions at the ballot box.

The Iowa Association of Business and Industry has partnered with BIPAC to provide an important resource, www.iavotes.com, where Iowa voters can research and learn more on where candidates and elected officials stand on issues important to Iowa employees, industry sectors and consumers.

This nonpartisan, unbiased information can help voters learn about issues, take action, spread the word and help more Iowans make educated decisions in November.

The iavotes.com website offers a variety of resources, including voting records for incumbent candidates to the Iowa Legislature. Voters can see how Iowa lawmakers voted on issues important to Iowa businesses. There’s even a tool for Iowans to identify their specific candidates. The website also offers side-by-side comparisons of candidates running for the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives.

Once voters feel confident about their decisions, iavotes.com has the tools to help them check their voter registration, register to vote and request an absentee ballot. Those interested in voting on Election Day can find information to help them locate their polling places.

Don’t be silent this Election Day, especially when ABI and iavotes.com have all the resources needed to help make participation easy.
