If you are unable to vote early, you always have the option of voting at the polls on Election Day. Bring one of the following forms of identification with you:
- Iowa Driver’s License or Non-Driver ID (up to 90 days expired)
- Current U.S. Passport
- Current U.S. Military ID
- U.S. Veteran’s ID
- New Voter ID Card mailed automatically and free of charge to registered voters who do not have an Iowa Driver’s License or Iowa Non-Driver ID.
- Tribal Identification Card
Vote Without Form of Identification
If you show up to your polling place without proper identification, you may sign an additional oath and vote a regular ballot.
Registering to Vote & Address Changes on Election Day
If you need to register to vote on Election Day, or if your address has changed since you last voted, you will be required to bring proof of address as well as your proper identification.
