What if I don’t have my voter registration card any more?
If you are registered at the correct precinct, you do not need your voter registration card to vote. If you are asked for identification, show your current driver’s license or other picture identification.
What if I go to the polls and they tell me I am at the wrong precinct?
You will be directed to the correct precinct and you can vote there.
What if I go to the polls and they tell me I am not registered to vote?
You can register to vote at the polls on Election Day. You will be required to show proof of residency and proof of identity. The best form of ID is a valid Iowa driver’s license with current address. If your Iowa driver’s license has an old address on it, contact the Auditor’s office (641) 673-7148 for additional requirements.
Can another voter attest for me if I do not have proof of residence or identity?
If you do not have proof of residence and identity, a registered voter in the precinct may attest to the fact that you are who you say you are and that you live in the precinct you say you live in.
If you have a registered voter in the precinct attest to your residence and identity, you will both be required to sign an oath. Falsely attesting or being attested for is a class “D” felony.
If you do not have proof of residence or identity and do not have anyone who can attest to your residence and identity, you will be allowed to vote a provisional ballot. You will have until noon, Wednesday, Nov. 6, to present the proper I.D. information in the Auditor’s Office. The special precinct board will meet Wednesday, Nov. 6, to consider provisional ballots.
