Special Public Policy Update: 2023 Voter Resource Guide

October 16, 2023 | Public Policy

Election 2023 is upon us, and once again the Cedar Rapids Metro Economic Alliance has made it easy for our members to get to the polls and VOTE! With our 2023 Voter Resources Guide, you can read about all the candidates and initiatives on your ballot, and easily plan for Election Day, November 7 with our Voter Toolkit.

While Cedar Rapids Metro Economic Alliance is a non-partisan entity and does not formally endorse or donate to political candidates, we do encourage our members to be informed on the issues and vote for business and community-friendly candidates and initiatives when they go to the polls. 

We’ve asked each candidate running in Cedar Rapids, Hiawatha, Marion and Robins to answer the important question of why the business community should support them. And with an emphasis on collaboration, we asked candidates to provide examples of when they’ve worked with groups or people who disagree with their positions to reach consensus. Promoting collaboration is important to the Economic Alliance and our members, and it’s why we continue our strong push to encourage solution-oriented policymakers at all levels of government.

If you have any questions, please reach out to the Economic Alliance’s Public Policy Strategist Barbra Solberg at
And remember to VOTE on or before November 7!
