Iowa: election-day registration now available

The Times-Republican reports: While the time to pre-register to vote has passed, those wishing to participate in Tuesday’s primaries have an option that was not available in previous years – registering on election day.

This is the first statewide primary election where the option has been given.

Those wishing to register on election day must bring along proof of identity and residency. If no identification is available, a registered voter in the precinct can attest to the registrant’s identity.

Even if that option is not available, a registrant can still vote without proof of identity or someone to vouch for them. They will be given a provisional ballot, which is subject to verification of the information the registrant volunteers.

For those already registered, if changing parties is desired, they can do so at the voting location before casting their ballot. -- Registering on election day now an option for voters | Times Republican
