NW Iowa Counties Registered Voters

reg_voters_in_nw_iowa.jpg

In Northwest Iowa, registered Republicans far outnumber Democrats.  However, there is also a large number of undeclared voters.

Siouxland Public Media’s Mary Hartnett has this report.

There are at least fifty-percent more registered Republican than Democratic voters in the 25 Iowa counties in and around Siouxland.  According to the Iowa Secretary of State’s Office, there are fifty-nine and half thousand Democrats, nearly one-hundred eighteen thousand  Republicans and 87 and a half thousand undeclared registered voters.  The biggest Republican strongholds are Sioux, Woodbury and Carroll Counties.  Democrats are strongest in Buena Vista and Monona Counties. However, Woodbury County has an almost equal number of Democrats and Republicans.  

Iowa is still classified as a toss-up state in the presidential election. It has six electoral votes.  For Siouxland Public Media, I’m Mary Hartnett.
