Begins Early Voting

Back in the day, Iowa was the best crossroad of America, representing a cross-section of America’s diversity. Do you still think Iowa best represents the U.S.?

Election day is no longer just November 6.  Early voting has become a an increasing trend over the years.  In Iowa, at least 30 percent of people are expected to cast their ballots prior to election day.  Yesterday marked the beginning of the race to election day.

When will you be voting? Early? Absentee? In person?
