IOWANS SET RECORD FOR VOTER TURNOUT

DES MOINES—Iowa has set a record for voter turnout in the 2010 midterm election.
Secretary of State Michael Mauro says over 1.1 million Iowans voted in the November election. That accounts for a 54 percent turnout and is the highest number of total voters participating in a midterm election in state history. Mauro says the State Board of Canvassers certified the results of all but three races on Monday. The results of the race for governor and lieutenant governor, won by Republicans Terry Branstad and Kim Reynolds, won’t become official until the Legislature convenes and canvasses the results on Jan. 10. The results from a recount in the Senate District 13 race in the Clinton area, won by Democrat Tod Bowman, will be made official on Dec. 6.
