DES MOINES – More than 250,000 Iowans have registered to vote since the beginning of 2015, according to the Iowa Secretary of State’s Office.
Secretary Paul Pate’s office says the all-time high for active registered voters was broken in January 2017 at 2,045,864.
“It has never been easier to register to vote in Iowa,” Secretary Pate said. “The simplest way to register is online. Since my office instituted online voter registration in 2016, almost 90,000 Iowans have registered to vote or updated their voter registration through that system. I encourage every eligible Iowan to register to vote and to be a voter.”
