GOP gathering voting, recount data in Iowa

Posted: Updated:

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- With Election Day just around the corner in the competitive Iowa Senate race, Republicans are requesting information from state and local voting officials about polling places, voting rules and recount procedures.

The GOP says it just wants to be prepared in case there is any question about the outcome between Republican Joni Ernst and Democrat Bruce Braley. The National Republican Senatorial Committee recently requested materials from the Iowa secretary of state's office and the Ernst campaign has reached out to county auditors, seeking information.

The NRSC has made similar requests to secretary of state offices in 10 other states with tight Senate races.

Democrats have not made such extensive record requests of Iowa officials. They say they are focused on winning, but will be ready for a recount situation.
