Vote on Election Day
On election day voters will need to vote at their assigned polling place to vote. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on election day.
Voters on election day will be asked to provide ID to vote. These are the valid forms of ID:
- Iowa Voter Identification Card (needs to be signed)
- Iowa Driver's License
- Iowa Non-Operator ID
- U.S. Military ID or Veteran ID
- U.S. Passport
- Tribal ID Card/Document
A voter without one of the above forms of ID may have their identity verified by another registered voter in the precinct. The voter may also use Election Day Registration documents.
What If I'm not registered before Election Day?
If you are new to Linn County or missed the pre-registration deadline, it is still possible to register and vote on Election Day by using the Election Day Registration.
You'll need to find your polling place for where you are currently living. Use the Linn County Lookup Tool to find your correct polling place.
At your correct polling place, you will need to prove who you are (ID) and where you live (residence). The best document to bring is your Iowa driver's license with your current address.
