Recently registered voters to receive updated cards
DES MOINES – Nearly 22,000 Iowa voters will receive a new voter registration acknowledgement, courtesy of the Iowa Secretary of State's Office. The cards are being sent to ensure Iowans who registered to vote or updated their registration between July 25 and August 17 have accurate information following a recent court ruling.
The new cards are being mailed Monday and should arrive within the next two weeks. The cards instruct voters that for elections held in 2018, registered voters are required to provide an approved form of identification or sign an oath of identification at the polling place before receiving and casting a ballot.
For voters who do not have an Iowa driver's license or non-operator's ID, the voter acknowledgement includes a voter ID PIN card, which can be used for identification purposes. Receiving an updated registration acknowledgement does not mean voters are registered more than once.
Iowans with questions about mailing should contact the Iowa Secretary of State's Office or their county auditor.
