The vast majority of LGBTQ voters are registered as either Democrats or Independents. Only 15% of LGBT voters are registered as Republicans nationwide, according to research from the Williams Institute at UCLA.

On this episode of River to River, host Ben Kieffer continues a series of conversations with voters just two weeks ahead of Election Day. Kieffer is joined by three LGBTQ Iowans for a look at the issues informing their voting decisions.
