(DES MOINES) The Iowa State Canvassing Board certified the special election results in House District 4 on Monday. A special election was called by Governor Terry E. Branstad to fill the vacancies created by the death of State Representative Dwayne Alons.
"It is my honor to welcome Representative John Kooiker and present him with a copy of the official state canvass results. Public service is a noble endeavour and I applaud his willingness to serve the people of House District 4," stated Pate.
The State Canvassing Board is comprised of the Executive Council members who met Monday to certify the results of the special election. The Governor called the meeting to order and Secretary of State Pate's office gave the official state canvass results. A certified copy of the official results which declares the winner is signed by the board and is then taken to the Chief Clerk of the House of Representatives.
Final results are posted on the Secretary of State website.
