When can I register to vote?
There is no waiting period to be eligible to register to vote. If you move, you may register to vote as soon as you move into your new home. On April 3, 2007, Governor Culver signed House File 653, which allows voters to register and vote on Election Day. This law took effect January 1, 2008. There is still a voter registration deadline of ten days before primary and general elections and eleven days before all other elections, but you can still register after the deadline using the Election Day Registration procedure. However, this procedure has more requirements than registering before the deadline. For more information, please visit the Iowa Secretary of State page.
