Pre-registered voters are now required to provide an approved form of identification at the polling place before receiving and casting a regular ballot. Voters who are not pre-registered (such as voters registering on Election Day, and voters changing precincts), must also provide proof of residence. The following documents can be used as proof of residency if they contain your name and current address, and are current within 45 days: Residential lease, utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, government check or other government document, or a property tax statement (current within 45 days of final payment date). Voters who are unable to provide an approved form of identification (or prove residence if required), may have their identities attested to by another registered voter in the precinct, or have the right to cast a provisional ballot. Attesters must also provide an approved form of identification. For additional information about providing proof of identity and/or residency, you may visit the Secretary of State’s website at: https://sos.iowa.gov/voterid, or contact the Delaware County Auditor’s Office at 563-927-4701.
