A poll conducted during the Iowa State Fair overwhelmingly showed people are in favor of a Voter ID law in Iowa and in their county of residence.  Out of more than 5600 votes cast, 76% are in favor, 22% said no and only two percent have no opinion.  Washington County Auditor Dan Widmer says if such a law were to be passed, people might see a small delay at the polling place as they would need to present a valid form of identification in order to vote.

He notes the main issue for wanting such a law is maintaining the integrity of the election and this would be one more way of making sure that happens.  To see county by county results from the Secretary of State’s poll, look here.
