Voting from home is the safest and easiest way to have your vote counted this election! ISEA encourages members to vote early by requesting an absentee ballot for the November general election. Print off an Absentee Ballot Request and mail the completed form back to your county auditor. Ballots will be sent out in early October. Once you receive your ballot, fill it out, and send it back to your county auditor to have your vote cast.

The 2020 Census is upon us. The NEA’s “We Count” campaign promotes participation in the 2020 United States Census. There are excellent resources available here for educators and students to make sure we are all counted in the census.
We all need to be held accountable in order for our schools and students to succeed, especially those holding the purse strings of the state budget. That’s why the ISEA developed a comprehensive program to help make public education issues an important part of the campaigns of candidates at all levels. We hold politicians accountable for the decisions they make concerning public education.
Our political action arm is called the ISEA PAC and it is made up of association members who are appointed at the local level. ISEA PAC uses an extensive interview and recommendation process to identify candidates who truly support educators and public education.
It’s a fact of life that every decision that affects education is a political decision. That’s why the ISEA has developed a comprehensive program to help make public education issues an important part of the campaigns of candidates at all levels. Through our political action arm, ISEA-PAC, association members interview candidates about their views on education-related issues, issue recommendations on which candidates are most supportive of public education, and work to help get pro-education candidates elected.
Your voluntary contribution to our political action arm, ISEA-PAC, gives us the strength and political influence we need to make a difference for students and public education in Iowa. It helps us elect candidates who have their priorities straight and who are willing to back up their talk with positive action.What’s more, ISEA-PAC contributions help us help Iowans get beyond the campaign rhetoric and better understand what’s really at stake.
Here’s how ISEA-PAC works: We use an extensive interview and recommendation process to identify candidates who truly support educators and public education. Then, we disseminate that information to help our members — and the public — make informed decisions on election day.
