what's new in iowa voting since 2020
It can be hard to keep up with all of the changes in election laws these days, but don't worry. We'll help you make sure your voice is heard in this election. Pay close attention to the new deadlines, as they have changed since 2020. The early voting period now begins 20 days before election day, rather than 29. Additionally, the voter registration deadline AND the absentee ballot application deadline are now 15 days before an election, up from 10. Be sure to double check drop box locations, as they have likely changed since 2020. In good news, online absentee ballot tracking is now available to all Iowans.

Vote Save the Senate Fund
If we can increase our majority to 52 Senate seats in 2022, Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema’s refusal to change the filibuster won’t matter. We can elect a Democratic majority that takes decisive action on raising the minimum wage, forgiving student debt, fighting climate change, protecting reproductive freedom, and more. But that will only work if we also protect the four most vulnerable Democratic incumbents in purple states like Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, and New Hampshire.
