Nearly 5,000 Iowans register to vote on National Voter Registration Day

DES MOINES – Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate applauds Iowans for stepping up and participating in National Voter Registration Day. A total of 4,738 Iowans registered to vote or updated their voter information using the state's online voter registration system on Tuesday, September 25.

"I'd like to thank all the colleges, universities, school districts, civic groups, and media organizations in the state that helped promote National Voter Registration Day. It was a huge success in Iowa," Secretary Pate said. "Iowans take voting very seriously and these numbers reflect that fact."

Iowa's online voter registration system was implemented by Secretary Pate in January of 2016, in partnership with the Iowa Department of Transportation. Since then, nearly 100,000 Iowans have utilized the system to register to vote or update their voter registration information. More than 8,000 Iowans used the online system between September 19-25.
