Hillary Clinton didn’t want to leave anything to chance when she arrived here for a rally on the first day of early voting in Iowa. Her campaign stationed volunteers around her downtown rally to direct members of the audience to nearby polling places to submit their ballots.
“When you finish here, you can go vote,” she told the crowd of roughly 2,000. “We can be on the path to victory here in Iowa.”
She hopes voting early can give her campaign an edge, but mail ballots haven’t kept pace with previous elections.
