The League of Women Voters takes a nonpartisan approach to politics. We have Board Members who are Republicans, Democrats, and Independents. We focus on issues, especially those concerning the right to vote.
A Statement from our State League
"On February 8, 2017, the LWVIA Board approved the following:
"The League of Women Voters of Iowa believes voting is a right, not a privilege. We support free, fair and accessible elections, and believe that no person or group should face legal, economic or administrative discrimination. We oppose any form of voting restrictions, while continuing the dialogue to improve Iowa’s voting process."

Beginning in 2018, precinct officials will ask pre-registered voters to provide one of the following valid forms of identification:
-Iowa driver’s license
-Iowa non-operator ID card
-U.S. military ID
-U.S. veteran ID
-Iowa Voter ID PIN card
The Iowa Voter ID PIN card is new in 2018, and is provided automatically by the county auditor to each voter who does not have either an Iowa driver’s license or non-operator ID. If you have a question about the Iowa Voter Identification Card, contact your county auditor. During 2018, a voter who is pre-registered in his or her precinct and who does not have a valid form of identification may sign an Oath of Identification to prove identity.
There is a lot of information about voting with disabilities.
Finally, if you have a friend who THINKS he or she is registered to vote, but isn't sure....they can now search the database. https://sos.iowa.gov/elections/voterreg/RegToVote/search.aspx
