From Iowa Capital Dispatch:

A number of conservatives also support absentee voting. The conservative R Street Institute provides data that shows absentee voting has been on the rise since 2008. The highest year for absentee voting, before 2020, was 2014, the year the GOP retook the Senate, kept the House, and won governor’s races.  R Street also shows evidence that absentee voting fits with conservative values, as the practice is more secure, more cost-effective, and is supported overwhelmingly by voters.
