DES MOINES, Iowa -- The State of Iowa is putting this year's election in the books.

The Secretary of State's office says the Iowa Board of Canvassers officially certified results of the 2022 general election Thursday morning.

They say voter turnout was the second highest in Iowa history for a midterm election, with 1,230,416 people casting ballots.

Of those, 859,835 voters cast their ballots on Election Day while 370,581 voters cast absentee ballots.

Winneshiek County had the top turnout in the state with 64 percent of all registered voters casting ballots.

The Secretary of State's office also says last time Iowa’s entire congressional delegation was represented by one political party was 1955, when eight members of the House of Representatives and both U.S. Senators were Republicans.

Iowa has that again in 2022 with Republicans in all four House districts and both Senate seats.

The State Board of Canvassers is comprised of Iowa’s Governor, Secretary of State, Secretary of Agriculture, State Auditor and State Treasurer.
