What are the requirements to be eligible to vote in Iowa state and local elections?

In order to vote under Iowa law, you must be a U.S. citizen, at least eighteen (18) years of age on Election Day, and a resident of Iowa.  You cannot register to vote if you are a convicted felon (unless the president or governor has restored your voting rights), if you have been judged to be incompetent by any court, or if you claim the right to vote in any other place.

The information on this page is meant to provide a general overview of the law. The laws in your state and/or city may deviate significantly from those described here. If you have specific questions related to your situation you should speak with a local attorney.
