DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - It's voter registration day, which means it's as good a day as any to register for those who haven't voted in a while or to update voter registration if there's been a move, name change, or party affiliation change.
Gov. Terry Branstad proclaimed Tuesday Iowa voter registration day to highlight the importance of registering for the upcoming Nov. 6 general election.
The Iowa Secretary of State has forms on his website and a program that allows voters to type in their name and zip code to see if they are registered and listed as an active voter.
Iowa is one of eight states to offer election day registration but voters must have proper identification including a picture ID and proof of address to register at the polls.
