Welcome to Iowa on Ballotpedia!


Located in the Midwest region of the United States, Iowa is landlocked by the Mississippi River, Missouri River, Wisconsin, Illinois, South Dakota, Missouri, Nebraska and Minnesota. Nicknamed the “Hawkeye State,” Iowa is the 30th most populous of the 50 United States and has been one of the safest states in which to live. The capital and largest city is Des Moines. Currently, Iowa has two members of the U.S. Senate, a total of four members of the U.S. House of Representatives, 100 members of the Iowa House of Representatives and 25 members of the Iowa State Senate. As of September 2013, Iowa is one of 13 states that is under divided government and does not have a state government trifecta.
