You can register to vote and obtain a Voter ID Card with a valid Iowa driver’s license that has your current address listed, or with one of the below forms of current, valid photo ID that has an expiration date:

  • Iowa non-driver ID card
  • Out-of-state driver’s license or non-drive ID card
  • U.S. passport
  • U.S. military ID
  • ID card issued by employer
  • Student ID issued by Iowa high school or college
  • Tribal ID

You will have to provide additional documentation if you are using a non-driver’s license photo ID, such as:

  • Residential lease
  • Utility bill (including a cell phone bill)
  • Bank statement
  • Paycheck
  • Government check or other government document

A registered voter from your precinct may also attest to your identity. Both you and the attester would be required to sign an oath swearing the statements are true.
