•Iowa driver’s license or non-operator ID
•U.S. passport
•U.S. military ID or veteran’s ID
•Tribal ID/document

•Iowa voter ID card Note: If a voter lacks these IDs, another registered voter in the precinct can attest to their identity, or they can use Election Day Registration documents. Voters without ID or an attester will receive a provisional ballot and can provide ID by the county canvass deadline (the Monday after election day for Primary and General Elections). Registered voters without a valid ID will automatically receive a free Voter ID Card by mail. For more info click here.

Any registered Iowa voter can request an absentee ballot from their county auditor by providing their name, date of birth, residential address, voter verification number, election date or name, and party affiliation for primaries. Requests must be received by the county auditor by 5:00 p.m., 15 days before the election. Return the completed ballot by mail (received by 8 PM on Election Day), in person at the county auditor’s office, or through a designated person if you’re disabled or it’s a family/household member. Alternatively, you can surrender your absentee ballot at your polling place on Election Day to vote a regular ballot. Voted absentee ballots cannot be delivered to polling places on Election Day. For more details, contact your County Auditor.
