Iowa Primary Election Features Crowded Democratic Races

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Depending on their party, Iowa voters will have a packed or sparse primary election ballot.

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday for an election that features plenty of Democratic candidates seeking to run against Republican incumbents. Because the GOP holds so many statewide and congressional offices, Republican voters will see fewer options as most incumbents will face challengers.

Democrats will pick from contested fields for governor, three of four congressional seats and secretary of state.

Republicans will see contested races for the 4th Congressional District and state agriculture secretary.
