Siouxland states report large voter numbers for 2012 election
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -
In the presidential election one month ago today, a record number of Iowans cast ballots. The Quad-City Times newspaper reports that more than 1.5 million people voted in the Hawkeye state 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. The data shows more people voted on Election Day for Republican challenger Mitt Romney's ticket, but President Barack Obama had an early voting edge over the former Massachusetts governor.
In Nebraska, more than a quarter percent of people who voted during the November 6th election chose to do so early. The state Secretary of State's office says more than 800,000 people voted in the general election this year. That includes more than 200,000 early voters.
