Iowa's New ID Requirements
Beginning January 1, 2019, Iowa voters will be required to show one of the following ID's 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.
- Iowa Driver's License or Non-operator's ID
- U.S. Passport
- U.S. Military ID or Veteran's ID
- Voter ID
- Tribal ID card/document
Don't have an ID?
If a registered voter does not have an Iowa driver's license or non-operator's ID, a voter card will be issued free of charge. Voter cards must be signed before going to the polls on Election Day.
