House Votes to not Count 29 Absentee Ballots Cast by Northeast Iowans
DES MOINES, Iowa -- After the first House vote of the year, absentee ballots cast by 29 northeast Iowans will not count in November's midterm election. The ballots are among 33 received after election day, and while the post office determined they were mailed before the election deadline, they lacked a postmark, as required by state law.
