Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds has signed a bill that will deny county officials the ability to use a voter database to confirm missing or incorrect information on absentee ballot requests.

The measure was part of a massive budget bill. Reynolds had the option of using the line-item veto but she did not.

She signed the bill Tuesday, allowing the measure to become law. It requires county election officials to call, email or mail a letter to voters who make a mistake or leave information off an absentee ballot request form.

County election officials opposed it. Democrats labeled it voter suppression.
