Answers to frequently asked voting questions:
How do you register to vote?
There are several ways to register to vote – you may pre-register online or by mail (you’d be wise to pre-register several weeks prior to the election), or you may register in person on election day.
You can register to vote online HERE.
Pre-Register by Mail
If you prefer, you may download this PDF and mail (or e-mail) it to your County Auditor.
To request an absentee ballot, please contact your County Auditor, or download an Absentee Ballot Request Form and send the completed form to your Auditor.
Register in Person
You may register and vote on election day. At the polling place, you must now prove both who you are and where you live by bringing a current photo ID.

What do you need to know about the new voter ID law?
In 2018 Iowa 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 a driver’s license, non-driver’s ID, passport, military ID, veterans ID, tribal ID or Voter ID Card 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 (the Monday after election day for Primary and General Elections).
Any registered voter who does not have a valid driver’s license or non-operator’s ID issued by the Iowa Department of Transportation will be issued a Voter ID Card for free, automatically, in the mail. This also applies to anyone who registers to vote in the future. Obtaining the Voter ID Card does not require any further documentation or action by the voter; voters simply need to be registered to vote in the county where they live.

How do you vote early by absentee ballot?
To vote by absentee ballot, simply download the Absentee Ballot Application, complete the application, and send it to your County Auditor. The application must be received by the County Auditor at least eleven days prior to the election. Your County Auditor will then mail you a ballot with instructions on how to complete and return your votes.
