Voter ID

Check out this video explaining what is needed under the new Voter ID law.

Beginning January 1, 2018 voters will be asked to show their ID before voting at the polls. Anyone who does not have the necessary ID will be asked to sign an oath* verifying their identity, and will be allowed to cast a regular ballot.

Beginning January 1, 2019, Iowa voters will be required to show their ID at the polls before they vote. Voters without the necessary ID will be offered a provisional ballot and can provide ID up until the time of the county canvass of votes (Monday after election day for Primary and General Elections).

You can find out more about the new Voter ID law at the Secretary of State’s FAQ page or contact the SOS directly.

Necessary ID includes:

  • Your valid Iowa Driver’s License
  • Your non-operator ID
  • Your Voter ID Card**
  • Your passport
  • Your Military ID
  • Your Veterans ID

**If you are a registered voter without a state-issued driver’s license or non-driver’s ID, you will be receiving your new Voter ID card in the mail.  Once you receive your Voter ID Card, you should sign it and put it in your purse or wallet; you will need to take it with you to vote.

If you lose or do not receive your Voter ID card, you may request a replacement from the Warren County Auditor.
