Any US Citizen over the age of 18 can register and vote here in Ames! The rule of thumb is "vote where you sleep." Feel free to contact us with any questions about whether you can vote and how to do so!

Where do I vote?

Are you registered to vote?


You're all set! Just show up to your polling location to vote. You will be asked to show an ID at the polls before you vote.


You can show any of the following:

  • Iowa driver’s license or non-driver ID card

  • Iowa Voter ID Card ( would have come in the mail after you registered to vote if you do not have an Iowa Drivers License)

  • U.S. passport

  • U.S. Military ID or veteran’s ID

  • Tribal ID/document

If you do not have an ID from that list, you can show one of the IDs from the "IDENTITY" election day registration day list. Along with those IDs you will also need to prove residency. See instructions under "RESIDENCY".


No problem! You can register to find voter registration information here. You can also register at the polling location on election day!  It is easy, but you will need to prove identity and residency
