MEDIA RELEASE: Secretary Pate helping voters prepare for November city-school election

DES MOINES – Secretary of State Paul Pate is launching a new voter education initiative to help Iowans prepare for the November 2 city-school election. Advertisements paid for by the Secretary of State’s Office are airing statewide on television, radio, print, and social media. They encourage Iowans to participate in local elections and include important information about absentee ballot deadlines and polling hours.

Every ad directs Iowans to visit, a one-stop website for voting and election-related information

“City and school elections make a big impact on Iowans’ daily lives, probably more than a lot of people realize,” Secretary Pate said. “You can make a difference on the future of your community by casting a ballot. Voting is the best way to make your voice heard and I encourage all eligible Iowans to register and participate.”

The new advertisements are in addition to Secretary Pate’s partnership with Iowa’s college football programs to raise awareness of the upcoming city-school election.
