Bipartisan millennial leaders launch social media effort to educate Iowa voters on new absentee voting process

WASHINGTON, DC — The Iowa Future Caucus — a bipartisan group of young legislators in Iowa —  shared unified video messages to educate voters and encourage absentee voting during this year’s elections. These legislators are among the Millennial Action Project’s (MAP)  many State Future Caucus members who are leading the way in ensuring citizens have safe options to make their voices heard. 

Representative Lindsay James (D) and Senator Zach Nunn (R) focused their message to Iowans on key dates to complete their ballot request form, ensuring all Iowans have an opportunity to participate in the upcoming June election. Representative Joe Mitchell (R) and Senator Zach Wahls (D) coordinated their message on the ballot itself, walking Iowans step-by-step through the ballot request process. They stressed the importance of voting at home in an effort to keep poll workers and voters safe, and encouraged all Iowans to vote by mail.

Videos like these help voters navigate the process of requesting their ballots and build their confidence in election systems as the country adapts to life during a pandemic. This is exactly the kind of leadership our country needs most, as states grapple with holding elections amidst COVID-19. While many state decision-makers fail to come together to ensure voter safety, our Future Caucus leaders in Iowa are ahead of the curve. The Iowa Future Caucus serves as a bipartisan model for the entire country and underscores that absentee voting is a viable and desirable solution for all Americans.
