The Countdown to Election Day: It's Time to Vote!

On Tuesday, November 4th Iowans will go to the polls to cast their vote for people who will represent them in Washington, D.C., Des Moines, and their county seats.   While every election is important, this is a significant year in Iowa.

  • This will be the first time in 40 years Iowa has had an open US Senate race.
  • Iowans will have at least two new faces representing them in the US House with open races in two Congressional districts.
  • Two candidates are hoping to be the first female member of Iowa’s Congressional delegation. 
  • Republicans control the Iowa House by only three votes, and Democrats control the Iowa Senate by only one vote.
  • Races are getting closer every year - with many in Iowa being decided by only a few votes.

There is a lot on the line in this election with both of the major parties trying to maintain control in both the US Congress and the Iowa Legislature. Polling in many races shows the candidates are running very close, with no one holding a decisive lead. Really, anything can happen this year.

Those elected in November will make many decisions that impact your life, on things like health care, community supports, Medicaid, education, immigration, war, and our economy. With so much riding on this election, it is important to take some time to get to know\the candidates and their stands on the issues before you vote.   On November 4, you will choose the people you trust to make the right decisions on the issues faced by our state, nation, and local governments.

In this issue, we have provided resources and information to help you make informed choices on the candidates you will support. Make your voice heard this November 4th because every vote counts - and there is a lot at stake this year.
