The law requiring proper ID at the polls does not go into effect until 1/1/19. However, there are situations where you may be asked for identification. Therefore, we recommend that all voters bring valid photo ID to the polls. Registration acknowledgement cards are provided for reference purposes and to allow you the opportunity to correct any errors with your registration. It is not a form of identification. However, the Voter Identification Card with a four-digit PIN issued to those without driver’s licenses is a valid form of identification. All forms must be current, valid and contain an expiration date. Here is the list of acceptable forms of photo ID in Iowa: - ID card issued by an employer - Iowa driver’s license - Non-driver identification card - Out-of-state driver’s license - Student ID issued by an Iowa high school or college - US military or Veteran's ID. Prior to 1/1/19, properly registered voters without ID may sign an oath attesting to their identity in order to vote.
