New Voting Laws

October 25, 2021

The 2021 Iowa General Assembly passed significant changes in election law, including a reduction in the time during which to vote by mail and in person.



What is a provisional ballot?


If a voter’s eligibility is in question on Election Day they are allowed to cast a provisional ballot. After the voter marks their ballot and returns it to the poll worker, the voter is required to provide the necessary identification or documentation at the polling place before it closes or provide it at the Auditor’s Office by noon on the following Monday. If the canvass will be held earlier than the following Monday, the identification must be provided before the canvass.

If it is determined that you do have the right to vote in the precinct in which you voted, your ballot will then be counted and included in the final vote total.
