Chip Baltimore (born March 22, 1966) is a member of the Iowa House of Representatives.
As of January 2013[update], Baltimore serves on several committees in the Iowa House – the Commerce, Economic Growth, and Ways and Means committees, as well as the Justice Systems Appropriations budget subcommittee. He serves as the Chair of the Judiciary committee.
Baltimore was first elected to the legislature in 2010.
During the 2017 legislative session, Baltimore voted to shorten both the amount of time one may cast an absentee ballot and the number of days one can vote at satellite polling sites, and he voted to require all voters to present a state-issued ID. Though he voted for the measure, the bill was opposed by the Iowa State Association of Counties, an advocacy group for Iowa's disabled, and Iowa's Department on Aging opposed the bill.
