Iowa Voter ID will not be required until January 1, 2018. However, here is a list of minor changes that will be in place as of July 1, 2017:
If you've moved within your county and updated your voter registration records including on Election Day, you can vote a regular ballot.
If you've moved within your county and not (a) updated your voter registration records nor (b) provided required documents (proof of residence* and valid ID) at your precinct’s polling place, you can (1) cast a provisional ballot and (2) bring these required documents to the absentee board or county auditors office before the absentee board completes counting absentee and provisional ballots (usually the Monday or Tuesday after Election Day, depending on which type of election).
Voters who register and vote on Election Day at polling places that do not have electronic pollbooks will cast provisional ballots. These voters do not have to return to the auditor’s office with additional documentation after they cast their ballots.
*Voters who register and vote on Election Day must show proof of residency that is current within 45 days. Acceptable forms include a current lease, utility bill, etc.
