Some Voters Getting ‘Change of Address’ Postcards from Secretary of State

If you’ve changed your address in the past year, the Iowa Secretary of State’s Office is asking for your help.

The annual National Change of Address process is underway – it helps maintain the accuracy of Iowa’s voter registration records. Notices are being mailed to around 90,000 registered voters in Iowa, who have filed a change of address with the U.S. Postal Service this past year.

Secretary Paul Pate says voters who receive these cards should follow the instructions on the return postcard to verify or correct their voting address – and then return it to their county auditor’s office as soon as possible. 

Data indicates 38,000 registered voters moved within their county during the past year. Over 52,000 moved outside their county, but still within the state of Iowa.
