To find out if you are registered to vote, please call the Hardin County Auditor’s Office at 641-939-8109, or you may visit the Iowa Secretary of State’s website.
The process for obtaining an absentee ballot is outlined in our helpful Absentee Ballot Resource Guide..
Registered voters who do not have an Iowa driver's license or a non-operator's ID will be issued a voter ID card for free, automatically. Voter ID cards must be signed before going to the polls. Voter ID cards will start being mailed in December 2017.
During 2018 , registered voters will be asked to show their ID before voting at the polls. Anyone who does not have their ID will be asked to sign an oath verifying their identity and will be allowed to cast a regular ballot.
Beginning January 1, 2019, Iowa voters will be required to show a driver's license, non-operator's ID, passport, military ID, veterans ID, or voter ID card at the polls before they vote. Voters without an ID may cast a provisional ballot or have another registered voter attest to their identification.
