Though not required until January 2019, registered voters will be asked to show photo identification before voting at the polls. You can verify you are registered to vote on the Iowa Secretary of State website or calling the Polk County Election Office at 515-286-3247. Voters may also register to vote at the polls by providing photo identification and current proof of residence (if different than that on your ID.)
Early voting will take place in the Library’s meeting room. No reservations for that space will be taken during early voting.
