Over the years, Iowa’s Commissioner of Elections (the Secretary of State) and Iowa’s County Commissioners of Elections (the 99 County Auditors) have simplified the official voter registration form; yet, our office and likely offices across the State continue to receive incomplete or improperly completed forms, i.e., unacceptable forms. These unacceptable forms require elections personnel to issue letters and take additional steps which can become quite a burden on resources during presidential election years.
In order to try to reduce the number of unacceptable forms arriving at our office, we have produced a video on How To Fill Out An Iowa Voter Registration Form.
If you have any questions after viewing the video, please contact Election Services at 319-892-5300 option 1. – Joel D. Miller – Linn County Auditor
