RE: Voter Registration Information Card

There have been many changes in legislation this year. One change was consolidating the City and School Elections, and as a result your polling place may have changed. The Secretary of State will be sending all active voters a new Voter Registration Information Card. This card will have your polling places outlined. Not everyone will see a change.

Please note that you are required by Iowa Code to present your Driver’s License at the polls and this card is only informational.

Anyone without a Driver’s License will be able to present this card as a form of identification. Please remember to sign the voter identification card.

If you have any questions please call 641-782-1701.

Thank You Cathy Dryden for your 30Years of Service as the Law Enforcement Center Board Chairperson.
