In Iowa, we can vote early starting in October.  I had a paper ballot, and in the past they had a bubble that you could mark to vote straight ticket.  It was removed due to the changes the republican governor, and House and Senate passed along with shorter voting times and an ID requirements that has been stopped. 

Anyone else voted, and any changes?

I have wondered if it wasn't an intentional drive to distance themselves from Steve King.

Always wondered how American States justify all these restrictions and voting regulations, especially shorter hours.
