Iowa absentee ballot request forms for the November election now available

Little Village,  July 10, 2018

As of Monday, the November general election is only 120 days away, which means people can now request absentee ballots from their county auditor’s office. The requested ballots will be mailed to voters starting on Monday, Oct. 8. ...

Note that under the new voter ID law, absentee ballot request forms must include the right ID number. There is not an “oath” option for mailed absentee ballots – if you do not provide the correct ID number, we cannot mail you a ballot.

If you have an Iowa Driver’s license or Iowa non-driver ID you are required to list that number. If you don’t have an Iowa license or non-driver ID, use the PIN number from your voter card. (Voters with an Iowa license or non-driver ID do not have a PIN number.) We cannot accept the last four digits of a Social Security number on an absentee ballot request.
