WHERE TO FIND INFORMATION ON CANDIDATES

More articles »

Voting in Iowa is pretty easy.  You just need to register to vote, and then choose how you want to vote (in person on election day, or early by absentee ballot, at a satellite voting site, or in your county auditor's office).  While not advisable, you can register to vote at the polls if you have proof of who you are (photo ID) and where you live.  What can be difficult though is finding out information on the people running for office.  Becoming an informed voter can be really tough, even in this age where everything is online. 

The best way to find out about candidates is to read the newspaper, watch debates, and simply meet the candidates yourself.  You can also get information about them online - including their websites and their social media posts. If you want to find out more information about the legislative candidates, each caucus puts out their own candidate book.  You can find information about:

  • Democrats running for State Representative here.
  • Republicans running for State Representative here.
  • Candidate information for State Senate has not yet been placed online in a single location.

We will post all legislative candidate bios on our website soon so you can find all the bios in one place - so check back at www.infonetiowa.org later this summer.
