No matter who is in office, the ACLU of Iowa works tirelessly to defend the voting rights of all Iowans.

But now in Iowa, more than ever, efforts to make it harder for people to vote are underway. Our politicians and even our Iowa Secretary of State have engaged in voter suppression, for example, by shortening the early voting period and implementing a voter ID law. 

People of color, people with low incomes, senior citizens, and people with disabilities are most likely to be affected by these voter suppression efforts. But through lawsuits, education, and advocacy, the ACLU of Iowa is fighting back against any efforts by politicians to make it harder for qualified Iowans to vote at every turn.
