In First Election After GOP Integrity Bill Passes, Iowa Election Turnout Soars
Earlier this year, Iowa Republicans passed election integrity legislation that improved the state's election systems. Instantly, Iowa Democrats and their allies began their misinformation campaign - that Iowa elections would now be more difficult to vote in and votes would be suppressed. Once again, their political spin and fear mongering never came to fruition. In reality, Iowans were more confident in our elections and went to the polls in large numbers to elect local leaders that will defend their freedoms, shattering 2019 statewide turnout. Even Democrat County Auditor Jamie Fitzgerald, from the state's largest county, recognized how much larger turnout was compared to 2019.
Iowa Democrats are desperate. They are willing to spread misinformation about our democracy to gin up their base and scare Iowans into voting for Democrats. Thankfully, it's not working.
"The right to vote is sacred and deserves to be protected and promoted, which is why Republicans passed legislation to strengthen our election system in Iowa," said Republican Party of Iowa Communications Director Kollin Crompton. "Why are Iowa Democrats allowed to continually make false, misleading, and dangerous statements without any accountability?"
