Who is eligible to request an absentee ballot and vote by mail?
Any registered voter in Iowa may request an absentee ballot. No excuse is required.
Do you need to submit ID with your absentee ballot request?
No. Rather, voters requesting an absentee ballot will be required to include their Driver’s license/Non-Operator ID number or their four-digit Voter PIN from their Voter Identification Card. Voters without an Iowa Driver’s License or Non-Operator ID number are mailed an Iowa Voter Identification Card at the time of registration.
First-time voters may need to submit ID – see Voter Registration section above.
Do you need to submit ID with your ballot?
No, but the signature on your mail mail ballot must match your voter registration signature.
