DES MOINES, Iowa (KTIV) -- The state of Iowa has reached a major milestone when it comes to voting.

On Monday, Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate announced that over the last five years 350,000 Iowans have registered to vote.

Officials say there are more than 2 million active registered voters in the state, the most ever for the state heading into a general election year.

More than 150,000 Iowans have registered to vote or updated their registration using the state's online system since it launched back in 2016.

“My goal has always been to make Iowa the top state in the nation for voter registration and participation. We’re consistently among the top 10 in both categories,” said Secretary Pate. “The reforms we instituted have made it easy to vote, but hard to cheat.”
