Bill to close voting polls hour earlier heads to Iowa House

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

(KTIV) – A bill that would make changes to Iowa’s election laws has cleared the Senate and will move to the Iowa House.

Closing polls an hour earlier– at 8 p.m., rather than 9 p.m.– is just one proposed change.

Another change would use postal service barcode technology to know whether an absentee ballot was mailed before the deadline.

The bill passed the Iowa Senate 31-to-18 along party lines.

The bill moves to the Iowa House for debate.

The Iowa legislative session is scheduled to end May 3.
