POLITICAL REFORM

Voter ID

During the 2017 session, we passed the Iowa Voter Integrity and Modernization Act. This requires voters to show an ID to vote in any public election. There are several documents that are acceptable and include DOT issued driver and non-operator licenses, Passports, Military ID, Veterans ID and of course for those without one of the listed documents, they will receive a Voter ID Card. This bill also shortens the length of time that absentee ballots can be mailed out and establishes a revolving fund that counties can use to upgrade election equipment if they choose to do so.
