What is the Voter ID Personal Identification Number (PIN)?

The Voter ID PIN is a four-digit number, randomly assigned to each voter. The PIN only prints on the voter confirmation cards sent to those registered voters who do not have either an Iowa driver’s license or Iowa non-operator ID. For voters without an Iowa driver’s license/non-operator ID, the PIN is required information on any absentee ballot request submitted by the voter.  Any registered voter may request a PIN card, but only voters lacking an Iowa DL or non-operator ID card will be automatically sent a PIN card.  State law prohibits County Auditors from mailing PIN cards to registered voters without request.
