[ARCHIVED] Voter ID Law Changes in 2018


During calendar year 2018, voters will be asked to show their ID before voting at the polls. Anyone who does not have the necessary ID will be asked to sign an oath verifying their identity, and will be allowed to cast a regular ballot.

Beginning January 1, 2019, Iowa voters will be required to show a driver’s license, non-driver’s ID, passport, military ID, veterans ID, or Voter ID Card 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 (Monday after election day for Primary and General Elections).

Valid Forms of Voter ID

  • Iowa Driver's License
  • Iowa Non-Operator's ID
  • U.S. Passport
  • Military ID
  • Veteran's ID
  • Voter ID Card

More information about Voter ID requirements can be found on the Iowa Secretary of State's Voter ID FAQ page.
