Iowa Voter ID Requirements


If you are a first-time voter who registered to vote by mail, and you did not meet the ID requirements when you registered to vote, then you should include a copy of your ID with your absentee ballot application.

Acceptable forms of ID include: a COPY of a current and valid photo ID OR a COPY of a utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck or government document which shows your name and Iowa address.

American Crossroads uses the most up-to-date information available, but all absentee voters are encouraged to check with their local clerk or their Secretary of State to confirm their absentee voting requirements before they submit an absentee voting registration so that they do not have any difficulties casting their ballot.
