What do I need to bring with me to vote?

Starting in January of 2019 you will be required to show identification. If you need to register to vote on Election Day, you must bring proof of identification and proof of residency.

Q.

Can an independent vote in a primary election?

A.

Yes and No. In Iowa, you must be a member of a political party (in 2020: Republican and Democrat) to vote in a primary election. However, anyone can change parties on Election Day and vote. For independents to vote they must declare a political party.
