Iowa is Suppressing the Disability Community’s Vote

Even amidst a global pandemic, voters turned out in record breaking numbers for the 2020 Presidential Election. Iowa had the highest voter turnout in state history with 1,700,130 voters casting ballots. 1,001,573 of those ballots were absentee. Iowa had an incredibly successful 2020 election where over 75% of Iowans voted. Yet, the legislature and Governor Kim Reynolds were extremely quick to pass legislation drastically reducing access to the ballot, especially for the disability community.
