Election Day Voter Registration

If you are unsure of your polling place, Find Your Precinct/Polling Place.

Eligible persons have the right to register to vote and cast a ballot on Election Day. At your polling place,  you must prove both who you are and where you live. The best way to do this is with your valid Iowa driver’s license with your current address printed on it.

If you do not have an Iowa driver’s license, you may use a photo ID that is current, valid, and contains an expiration date. The following are acceptable IDs:

If the address on your photo ID is not your current address, you may use another document (paper or electronic format) to prove where you live if it contains your name and current address and is current within 45 days. The following are acceptable proofs of residence:

If you cannot prove who you are and where you live with the documents listed above, a registered voter from your precinct may attest for you. Both you and the attester will be required to sign an oath swearing the statements being made are true.

Falsely attesting or being attested for is registration fraud. It is a class “D” felony and is punishable by a fine of up to $10,245 and up to 5 years in prison.
