Voters who plan to participate in the June 5 primary elections are reminded that poll workers are required by law to ask every voter for identification. Accepted forms of identification include a valid Iowa driver’s license, non-operator’s ID, veteran’s ID, military ID, U.S. passport, or a voter ID PIN card.
Any pre-registered voter who does not have identification can sign an oath of identity and vote a regular ballot.
Election Day registration is an option for voters who are not registered or have moved. They need to provide photo identification and proof of residency, such as a lease or utility bill. This may now be provided in an electronic format, such as an attachment in an email on a voter’s cellular phone.
Absentee voting: Absentee ballots MUST be postmarked by Monday, June 4. If a voter requested an absentee ballot but did not mail it in, he or she may surrender it at their polling place or return it to the county auditor prior to 9 pm on Election Day
