According to Secretary of State Paul Pate, the state saw its second-highest turnout for a primary since 1994.

IOWA, USA — Iowa officials have released voter turnout data for the 2022 primaries and laud strong numbers statewide.

According to Secretary of State Paul Pate, the state saw its second-highest turnout for a primary election since 1994, with 356,849 voters turning in ballots. That's still only 16.13% of the state's 2,212,081 registered voters.

Of those voters, 195,355 were registered as Republicans and 156,589 were registered Democrats.

“I think it went fantastic,” Pate said, thanking Iowa voters. “I’ve got to compliment all the voters and our unsung heroes, those poll workers. They came through with flying colors. We saw thousands of Iowans coming out to have their voice heard and democracy in action.”
