As the 2020 elections near, Iowans are now able to participate in early voting, submit absentee ballots, and even register to vote if they have not yet done so.
We are proud to launch our latest initiative: Voices to Votes, which aims to promote voter turnout in Iowa on Election Day.
Through this project, we will offer remote assistance to Iowans who need help with online voter registration, and will also answer any questions about voting processes and deadlines.
If you need help registering to vote, please click this link to schedule a 10-minute session over Phone/Zoom/Skype, where you can receive one-on-one assistance.
