Vander Linden is a native of Oskaloosa, Iowa. He attended the University of Iowa and became a member of the Iowa Beta chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity, graduating with a bachelor's degree in 1970. He received a master's degree from the University of Southern California. He was a United States Marine, eventually reaching the rank of Brigadier General.
During the 2017 legislative session, Vander Linden 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.
