Eligibility (73.9% eligible to vote)
Iowa gained statehood in December 1846. Prior to 1988, the state mostly voted Republican, choosing a candidate from that party all but five times from the Civil War years through that year. While a battleground every four years, Iowa had sided with the Democrats in six of seven elections from 1992 through 2012. That changed dramatically in 2016, when Donald Trump won the state by nearly 9.5%, a 15 point swing from 2012 when Barack Obama won the state by 5.8%.

Iowa has 6 Electoral College votes to cast in Presidential elections.
