Secretary Pate urges voters to respond quickly to change of address notices

DES MOINES – Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate announces the annual National Change of Address process to update and maintain Iowa's voter registration records is underway. Over the next few weeks, voters who have filed a change of address with the U.S. Postal Service will receive a card in the mail from their county auditor saying the USPS indicates they have moved.

Voters that receive these cards in the mail should indicate if the new address is incorrect and quickly return the card to the county auditor's office.

"We want to ensure Iowa's voter rolls are as accurate and up-to-date as possible," Secretary Pate said. "This is an important process that all 99 county auditors partake in and I appreciate their efforts to help us account for address changes and other factors that could impact the voter rolls."

The mailing is being conducted at the direction of Secretary Pate to ensure full compliance with the National Voter Registration Act, which requires periodic contact with voters to ensure the most accurate information is on file.
