Haley: States Should Announce Results Election Night

Ankeny, Iowa — Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley says the results of voting in all 50 states should be announced on Election Night.

Haley spoke to a crowd in Ankeny Wednesday night and was asked if she feels elections are fair.

Haley says a lot of states are doing things right and she urged the crowd to keep the faith about election integrity.

In May of 2011, when she was governor of South Carolina, Haley signed a law requiring voters show a drivers license, passport or military ID to prove they are eligible to vote in her state.

Haley said, to applause. South Carolina was the 10th state to pass a voter ID requirement. Haley says her state offered South Carolina residents who didn’t have a photo ID free transportation to get one.

Haley says a voter ID requirement is the right way to verify voters are who they say they are. Iowa’s voter ID law passed the legislature in 2017. Neither Haley nor the man who asked her the question mentioned former President Trump’s statements about the 2020 election results, but Haley said during COVID times there was some mail in voting that shouldn’t have happened.
