New State-Issued Voter ID Cards Going Out in the Mail to Thousands of Iowans

Iowa Public Radio,  December 6, 2017

The newly-designed state-issued cards are going out starting in this week to 123,000 Iowans who are registered to vote, but who do not show up on a list from the Department of Transportation indicating voters who have a driver’s license or a non-drivers ID. ...

Starting next year, voters will be required to present a government-issued ID at the polls, including a driver’s license or non-drivers ID, a passport, a military ID, or the new state voter ID card.

Anyone who does not receive the card by late December is advised to call their county auditor. ...

A voter who misplaces the new card will also have to contact the county auditor. ...

From now on the new cards will also be issued to newly-registering voters not on the DOT list.
