• "I voted early, have you?"

    Earlier this week, Senator Tom Harkin sent a message to Iowans about the importance of getting out to vote early for President Obama. Take a minute to read his message, then be sure to share with all of your friends so they know how important voting early here is!

    Early voting has started, and here in Iowa, every day from now through November 6th is Election Day.

    That means you can vote right away in person at early voting locations, or with a vote-by-mail ballot. Find out how.

    I cast my ballot early for President Obama because of what he has done to make quality, affordable health care accessible, to increase college affordability, to promote clean energy jobs and an extension of the wind production tax credit, and to show his commitment to our troops and their families -- all of which are so important here in Iowa and around the country.

    Senator Harkin voting early!

    With so much at stake for our country, you shouldn't wait to vote for President Obama and Iowa Democrats, either.

    Every ballot cast early builds our momentum towards celebrating a victory on Election Night, so let's keep moving forward with President Obama and Iowa Democrats who are fighting for all of us.

    The best way to do that is to join the tens of thousands of Iowans who, like me, have already voted in this election.

    Take a moment to find out where to vote early in your neighborhood.


    Your friend,

    Tom Harkin
