You would have to go through a clemency process with your Governor's office there is Iowa.

The criminal offense has to have taken place in Iowa. Otherwise, Iowa doesn't handle clemency for the offense and the state where it was committed does.

The felony has to have been a "non-forcible" felony, meaning one that is not related to assault or assault type offenses.

Here is the form for that clemency process:
