Iowa’s state voting laws

Makayla Tendall


  • Iowa allows same-day voter registration, meaning Iowans can register the day they vote. 
  • To register you must have proof of address, such as a piece of mail with your name on it, and your ID.  
  • Now if you register before Nov. 4, you will have to vote at the same time you register.

Early Voting: 

  • Up until Nov. 3, Story County residents can vote early in the Auditor’s office at 900 6th St., Nevada, Iowa.
  • The Story County Auditor will be set up at the Ames Library Extension or early voting Nov. 1 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.


  • Voting on Nov. 4 must be done at students precinct location only, which can be found on the Story County Auidtor’s webpage
