When do I need to provide ID?
Identification is required when voting on Election Day and when voting in-person absentee at the Auditor’s Office or at a Satellite Voting location.
Voter ID “PIN” Card
Any registered voter who does not have a valid driver’s license or non-operator’s ID issued by the Iowa Department of Transportation were issued a Voter ID Card containing a four-digit PIN. To be valid on Election Day the Voter ID card must be signed prior to arriving at the polling place.
If you should have been issued a Voter ID card but do not have one, please contact our office.
If you do not have an acceptable form of identification when going to vote you have several options:
- Have Someone Attest to your Identity
- Cast a Provisional Ballot
Voters were previously offered the option to sign an additional oath of identification in 2018. This option is no longer available.
