Ringgold County Auditor and Commissioner of Elections Amanda Waske is encouraging those who wish to vote in the 2020 General Election on November 3 to register early if they are not already registered.
In order to vote in the 2020 General Election, a voter must be registered. Voters may register on Election Day. However, Waske encourages voters to get registered before Saturday, October 24, at 5 p.m. to avoid extra paperwork at the polling site on Election Day. The Auditor’s Office is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on October 24.
“Our precinct election officials are ready to assist any voter who needs to register on Election Day,” Waske said. “However, it’s a much easier process if a voter registers before the October 24 deadline.”
A voter can still register after the October 24 deadline, but the voter will need more identification. Voters who vote absentee at the Auditor’s Office after the October 24 deadline, or those who plan to register on Election Day at their polling location, will need to show proof of residence and proof of identity. Proof of residency can be accomplished with:
• An Iowa driver’s license (with the voter’s updated address)
• A residential lease
• Property tax statement
• Utility bill
• Bank statement
• A government issued check or other government document
Acceptable proofs of identification must contain a photo and include
• An Iowa driver’s license
• Out-of-state driver’s license
• Non-driver identification card
• U.S. passport
• U.S. Military ID
• Employer issued ID
• Student ID from an Iowa high school or college
