Early voting for the 2020 General Election has begun in Iowa, but we won’t know the results until sometime after election day, November 3. In this edition of Talk of Iowa, host Charity Nebbe and historian Leo Landis take a look back at voting in Iowa through history.

Later in the hour, Charity talks with filmmaker Graham Swon who moved from New York to Iowa to find more opportunities in his medium.

Guests:

Leo Landis, state curator, State Historical Society of Iowa
Graham Swon, filmmaker and New York transplant
