MEDIA RELEASE: Secretary Pate declares victory in Voter ID court ruling


DES MOINES – Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate releases the following statement on a court ruling today that upholds Iowa’s Voter ID law:

“This ruling is a victory for election integrity. My goal has always been to make it easy to vote, but hard to cheat. Iowans have overwhelmingly voiced their support for Voter ID and this law ensures voters will be asked to provide identification before casting their ballot. Additionally, the court found that the requirement of a voter verification number on an absentee ballot request places no additional burden on voters. I appreciate the District Court’s decision that upholds the principles of Voter ID and election integrity. I will continue to fight to ensure Iowa has clean, fair elections statewide.” – Paul Pate, Iowa Secretary of State
