Iowa voting numbers at record high

Posted:

This year proved to be a record year in Iowa in terms of people who cast their ballots in the Presidential election, and the Tri-States was witness to it.

A record number of Iowans cast their vote this year in the Presidential election.

The Quad-City Times reported Monday that more than 1.5 million people in Iowa voted in the 2012 election for President and Vice President.

That includes another record for early or absentee voting, which brought in more than 688,000 votes.

Voter turnout in Lee County was also at a record high, experiencing a voter spike of 1,300 people, and even running out of ballots in the middle of the day.
