If you do not have an Iowa driver's license/non-operator ID, the voter confirmation card also includes a voter ID that includes a barcode and four-digit personal identification number (PIN). When you register to vote or update your voter registration, the Auditor's Office prints out and mails you a voter confirmation card. You will also receive a new card if your polling place changes permanently. If you need to update your registration information, please submit a new voter registration form. Changes to your voter registration record cannot be made via phone or email. If you do not receive a card within two weeks of your registration, please contact our office at (515) 382-7210.
No, if you do have an Iowa driver's license/non-operator ID that is unexpired or within 90 days past the expiration date. You will use your Iowa DL/ID as your identification to vote.
The voter confirmation cards issued to registered voters lacking an Iowa driver's license/non-operator ID include a Voter ID Card. Voter ID cards must be signed before you enter your polling place. The Voter ID Card also includes a scannable barcode and a four-digit PIN. This PIN is required on any request for an absentee ballot. Other acceptable forms of identification (must be current, valid and contain an expiration date):
- Out-of-state driver's license/non-operator identification card- US passport- US military or veteran's ID- ID card issued by an employer- Student ID issued by an Iowa high school or college NOTE: Iowa State University ID cards do not have an expiration date and therefore are not valid for this purpose.
For voters without an Iowa driver's license/non-operator ID, the PIN is required information on any absentee ballot request submitted by the voter.
If you have a valid Iowa driver's license or Iowa non-operator ID, you did not receive a card with a PIN.
You cannot request a card on behalf of someone else. Our office normally processes cards every business day.
