Revised to Reflect the Iowa Supreme Court Decision on the Voter ID Law
- When you’re out campaigning, be sure to take along some absentee ballot request forms (available here).
- Until a final decision in the Voter ID lawsuit is reached, a voter requesting an absentee ballot does not have to provide the ID number from his or her driver’s license, state ID, or voter ID card. The form available at the above link has an ID Number section, but voters do not have to fill that section out.
