Iowa Voters – One for the Record Books

November 5, 2020

Congratulations to Iowa voters who have broken records for civic involvement by every measure. This year 94% of eligible voters were registered to vote. For the first time, all Iowa voters were sent absentee ballot requests this year and a record 1,001,840 voters voted absentee. With all counties reporting, more than 1,697,000 Iowans cast a vote in the election. At 76% voter participation, Iowa should rank in the top five states for voter participation.

Thanks to ABI member companies that have promoted this important civic duty through the voter registration, education and turnout tools provided at Employers can and have played an important role in the engagement of their employees. Thanks for your efforts.
