Key Dates for Voting

Great Plains Action Society proudly serves the Black, Indigenous, and people of color in the tri-state area of Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota. We are currently located in the small metro-area known as Sioux City, Iowa.

Note: Early Voting - dates and hours may vary based on where you live

What to Bring

  • Identification: Pre-registered voters are required to provide an approved form of ID before casting a regular ballot. Approved forms of ID for pre-registered voters include an Iowa driver's license or non-operator ID, US passport, tribal ID card/document, US military or veteran ID, or an Iowa voter ID card.

  • If you are registering to vote after the pre-registration deadline or at the polls on election day, you must provide a current and valid photo ID. Approved forms of identification for election day registrants include the items listed above, excluding the Iowa Voter ID Card. Additional acceptable forms of identification are an out-of-state driver's license or non-operator ID, employer-issued ID, or student ID issued by an Iowa high school or college.

  • Proof of residence: If your address has changed or you need to register after the pre-registration deadline or at the polls on election day, you will also be required to provide proof of residence. If your current address is on your current and valid ID, then it may also serve as proof of residence. Proof of residence documents must include the voter's name and address and be current within 45 days of presentation. These documents, except an ID, may be in electronic format, such as on a cell phone or tablet. Additional approved proof of residence documents are a residential lease, utility bill (including a cell phone bill), bank statement, paycheck, government check or other government document, or a property tax statement (current within 45 days of final payment date).

  • Voters without ID: A voter who is unable to provide an approved form of identification (or is unable to prove residence, if required) may 1) have their identity/residence attested to by another registered voter in the precinct, or 2) cast a provisional ballot and can provide ID up until 12:00 p.m. noon on Monday after election day.
