Representative Sandy Salmon introduced House File 2046. The bill requires the Secretary of State to create a record containing all information in the statewide voter registration database at the time of an election for each voter who voted in that election.

The Secretary of State would have to maintain the record for 22 months.

The Iowa Minuteman Civil Defense Corps registered in support of the bill.

The League of Women Voters, Polk County Board of Supervisors and Iowa Chapter of Sierra Club are all registered undecided.

  1. There already is a paper trail of who voted. It’s how the votes are counted and what gets reported that is fraudulent. There needs to be clean voter rolls to start with. Then a mechanism to trigger an audit if the turnout is more than the historical average. It’s outrageous that we find out months after the votes are counted that more people voted than are registered to vote. Then to find out that dead people voted is scandalous and should result in laws actually being enforced. There needs to be ongoing random audits done on election day with consequences for fraud.
