Hillary Clinton is kicking off early voting in Iowa today with a major effort to boost support in the battleground state.
The Democratic presidential candidate will deliver a speech in Des Moines focusing on the childcare challenges faced by middle class families.
Clinton backers also plan to host events in 10 Iowa cities on Thursday, including one at 7am at the Grind Cafe here in Sioux City.
More than 4 in ten Iowa voters cast ballots before Election Day in 2012.
You may vote early in Sioux City or register to vote at the Woodbury County Courthouse at 7th & Douglas Streets.
