Not registered to vote? Not a problem in Iowa

If you aren’t registered to vote but would like to, it’s not a problem because in Iowa you can register on Election Day. 

You must first go to the correct polling place for your current address on Election Day. 

If you want to register to vote on Election day at the polling place, you must prove both who you are and where you live. 

The best way to do this is with your valid Iowa driver’s license with your current address printed on it.

If you do not have an Iowa driver’s license, you may use a photo ID that is current, valid, and contains an expiration date.

If you cannot prove who you are and where you live with the documents listed above, a registered voter from your precinct may attest for you.
