Like many, I wasn’t fully aware of the impact the Secretary of State’s office has on our state. When I met Deidre DeJear and heard her passion about voting and creating a better space for small businesses, I knew she was someone I wanted to support. As a small-business owner and longtime voting rights advocate, Deidre has the experience we need to lead this office.
Deidre understands the importance of proactively engaging hard to reach voters, like the hundreds of thousands living with disabilities right here in Iowa. Our Secretary of State must not only show empathy and an understanding of the challenges of access to voting, but must be willing to take action to find practical solutions that increase participation.
