The Election Modernization and Integrity Act was signed into law by Governor Branstad on May 6. This fulfills my campaign promise to bring a voter ID law to Iowa. We instituted voter ID at the polls and on absentee ballots, removed the potential for human error & fraud, updated technology, and expanded access by allowing 17-year-olds to vote in primaries. The bill is designed to ensure no eligible voter will be turned away from the polls.
This bill makes it easy to vote, but hard to cheat.
