Highest turnout ever for Iowa midterm election


DES MOINES (KWWL) -– Secretary of State Michael Mauro says nearly all of the 2010 General Election results are now official.

Monday, the State Board of Canvassers – composed of Governor Culver, Secretary of State Mauro, State Treasurer Fitzgerald, Secretary of Agriculture Northey and State Auditor Vaudt – certified the statewide results of the November 2, 2010 General Election.

In total, 1,133,434 Iowans voted in the 2010 General Election. This accounted for a turnout of 54% and was the highest number of total voters participating in a midterm election in state history.

The results of the election for governor and lieutenant governor will not become official until the 84th General Assembly convenes and canvasses the results on January 10, 2011.

The official canvass results can be seen here.
