FAQ

Q.

What if I lost my ID or forgot to take one with me to the polls?

A.

Starting in 2019, if you do not have your ID with you, you may either cast a provisional ballot or have another registered voter attest to your identity. Learn more about provisional ballots and attesting on our Voter ID page.

Q.

Do absentee ballots even get counted?

A.

Yes. There is a myth that absentee ballots only get counted if the election is close, however, this is not true. Under Iowa law, every ballot must be counted.
