Iowa’s Commissioner of Elections is promoting October 6th as the state’s second annual Iowa Voter Registration Day.Secretary of State Chet Culver says some 500 locations statewide will be registering new voters on that Saturday — grocery stores, convenience stores, libraries, banks and other places.Last year’s single-day event got three thousand Iowans registered to vote. He says Iowa has traditionally been a leader in the number of people registered to vote — also, about 72-percent of those who are registered actually vote in elections.About 90-percent of the Iowans who are eligible to vote are registered. Still, about 275-thousand Iowans are eligible who aren’t registered. Those are the ones Culver hopes to reach this time.
