Iowa absentee ballot numbers in the 2012 general election

by: desmoinesdem

Thu Sep 20, 2012 at 00:07:07 AM CDT


About one-third of the 1,528,715 Iowans who cast ballots in the 2008 general election voted early. Absentee voting saved several Democratic incumbents in the state House and Senate that year. Bleeding Heartland will update these tables on weekdays until election day, using figures posted on the Iowa Secretary of State's website (click the elections tab, then voters, then 2012 general election).

SEPTEMBER 27 UPDATE: Now adding totals for absentee ballots received by county auditors as well as absentee ballots requested each weekday.

SEPTEMBER 28 UPDATE: When an Iowan votes early in person at the auditor's office, that counts as an absentee ballot requested by the voter and as an absentee ballot received by the auditor on the same day.

OCTOBER 21 UPDATE: Recent polls by NBC/Wall Street Journal/Marist and Public Policy Polling suggest that President Barack Obama has a 2:1 lead among Iowans who have already voted. For that to be true, the majority of no-party voters who cast early ballots would have to be supporting the president.

New numbers? (0.00 / 0)
I was wondering when the updated numbers come out.  I looked on the Sec of State's website but couldn't find them.

usually they are out (0.00 / 0)
by around 9:30, some days a bit later. I was late updating this post yesterday.

Invite other Iowa political junkies to join us at Bleeding Heartland.
