Voter ID and Election Law Changes

For any election held after January 1, 2018 voters must provide proof of identification in order to vote.  During 2018, voters who cannot provide ID will be asked to sign an additional oath verifying identity and right to vote.  In 2019, voters who do not have ID will be allowed to cast a provisional ballot or have another reistered voter attest to their identification.  There are 5 approved types of identification that may be used:  an Iowa Driver’s Liscnese or Non-Operator ID, a Voter ID issued by the Secretary of State or the Auditor’s Office, a current US Passport, a US Military ID, or a US Veteran’s ID.

For more information on new voter identification requirements and other changes in Iowa’s election law, visit the Iowa Secretary of State’s new informational page.
