Iowa Special Election Scheduled for September 14
Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds issued a proclamation to schedule a special election for House District 37 on September 14 to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Rep. John Landon on July 29, 2021.
Iowa law requires a special election to be called within five days following a vacancy in the Iowa legislature.
There is no primary, and candidates will be nominated directly by political parties.
The winning candidate will serve the remainder of Landon’s term, which runs through 2022, and the seat will come up for election again next year.
