Poking around the Iowa Constitution, I find this:

No idiot, or insane person, or person convicted of any infamous crime, shall be entitled to the privilege of an elector.

They got rid of the section on deuling, but kept that?

  1. Allow me to correct myself – they actually got rid of the idiot restriction just last year. So idiots were barred from voting in 2008, but as of 2009, they are not so specifically restricted.
