FILE - In this Dec. 19, 2016, file photo, Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate collects ballots during Iowa's Electoral College vote at the Statehouse in Des Moines, Iowa. Pate has shown up in person to less than half of the meetings of a key panel that helps run Iowa's executive branch, an attendance record that one of his political opponents criticized Wednesday Sept. 27, 2017. Minutes reviewed by The Associated Press show that Pate has been absent for 20 of 76 meetings of the Executive Council during his nearly three-year tenure and called in to 21 more meetings.
