DES MOINES, IOWA (January 4, 2021) For third month in a row, Iowans set a record for the number of active registered voters in the state, Secretary of State Paul Pate announced today. Iowa has 2,124,895 active registered voters.

“We are consistently one of the best states in the country for voter registration and participation, and that trend continues,” Sec Pate said. “The reforms we have put in place, including online voter registration, our high-school voter-outreach efforts, and the Safe at Home address confidentiality program for survivors of violence, have all played a role in these record numbers. I’m proud of Iowans’ unparalleled level of civic engagement.”

More than 90 percent of Iowa’s eligible population is registered to vote.
