October 3 debate

Paul Pate and Brad Anderson discussed their views on voter ID and administration of absentee ballots during a debate for the public affairs program Iowa Press. Pate argued on behalf of a voter ID requirement, citing high bipartisan support in polls and the need to protect the integrity of elections. Anderson argued that a new voter ID law is unnecessary as state law already allows election inspectors to ask for identification if they suspect fraud.[3]

Pate and Anderson also revealed differences over the use of third-party groups to deliver absentee ballots to poll locations. This practice, used to increase voter turnout by both parties, was criticized by Pate because of the potential for ballot manipulation by political operatives. He also pointed to the ease of returning an absentee ballot by mail. Anderson countered that third-party groups ensure timely delivery of absentee ballots as elections near and protect the rights of voters with disabilities.[3]
