I received Iowa's application lately and it asks what I consider my home town to be. I was born in Iowa and lived there until I was 9. Then I moved to Illinois and lived there until I was 18. Since I was 18 I have lived in Missouri. Can I say that my town in Iowa is my home town? I have not lived there for 15-20 years, but my father is there. I don't want to be unethical, but I do want to demonstrate strong ties to the state. What does everyone think?
