Election Contests and Ballot Measures

November 4, 2014 Iowa General Election

Iowa

Note: Candidate pictures are the most current we have on file. Because this is a past election, they may not show a candidate’s likeness at the time of the election. Likewise, some of the links to websites, emails, and social media may be broken.

In addition to the office contest shown on our ballots, you may find additional county, city and local office contests on the ballot you will be given at the polls like Boards of supervisors, Treasurer, Recorder, Attorney, Hospital trustees, Soil and water conservation, district commissioners, Agricultural extension council members and judicial retention questions. Due to our limited resources we were unable to cover those contests.
