UPDATE FROM THE JOHNSON COUNTY AUDITOR’S OFFICE 10/25/18:

“Our office has received reports of possible misinformation being distributed on campus during today’s early voting. An Iowa driver’s license is NOT required to vote early. All requirements for IDs and ID numbers for early voting were suspended by court order earlier this year. ID – not necessarily an Iowa license – and proof of address WILL be required for voters completing election day registration after the pre-registration deadline this Saturday, October 27 at 5 PM.”
