Iowa has enacted two sweeping and unprecedented voter suppression laws which shorten the number of days and times that people are eligible to vote during. It also makes a voter “inactive” if they miss one federal election. Should county auditors not follow this rule, they could face criminal prosecution.


As a result of Iowa's voter suppression bills which were signed into law by Governor Kim Reynolds, it is less  convenient for all voters, including students, to vote.
