To find out if you are registered or if you need to update your registration, call the County Auditor's office at (641) 421-3027 or inquire with the Secretary of State's online site.
How can I register to vote?
There are several ways in which to register to vote. Voter registration forms are available at various locations including this website, or you may pick one up at the Auditor’s Office. You may also register to vote when you obtain a driver’s license or register online. You may request that the Auditor’s Office mail a voter registration form to you. Once the Auditor's Office processes your voter registration, you will receive notice that you are registered.
This is my first time voting. What do I need to do?
The name of the voter who is preregistered will appear in the precinct election register on Election Day.
Who can register to vote?
To register to vote you must be a citizen of the United States, a resident of Iowa, at least 17 years old, have not been convicted of a felony (or have had your rights restored), not currently judged by a court to be ‘incompetent to vote’, and you must have given up your right to vote in any other place. However, you must be 18 years old in order to vote.
Why should I preregister, if I can register on Election Day?
If you preregister to vote, you do not have to show proof of identity and current residency in your precinct. Refer to "Important Dates" under the specific election to determine the preregistration deadline.
When registering to vote at the polls on Election Day, you will have to show proof of identity and current residency in your precinct, so you should be aware the process will take more time.
