DES MOINES – Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate released the following statement Monday afternoon:

"I take the integrity of our elections very seriously. It is my number one priority. As the state's Commissioner of Elections, I can assure you Iowa's elections are not rigged. My pledge to every Iowan is that you will be able to cast your vote and your vote will count."
