MASON CITY, Iowa - If you want to make sure you're going in to the primary elections educated, listen up.
Laws are changing this year when it comes to voting in Iowa. What you need to be aware of is that you'll be asked if you have a form of I.D. and if you don't you'll have to take an oath. Next year, if you don't have an I.D., you will have to fill out a provisional ballot meaning if you can't prove you're a valid voter, your vote won't count.
“I think it could be for some people doesn't tend to be for me but not everyone has a driver’s license so hopefully they have a procedure for those who don't drive, or a student to that effect,” John Robbins from Mason City said.
A roundtable on this is happening Monday from 3pm to 4pm at the Cerro Gordo County Courthouse. Staff from the Iowa Secretary of State's office and the Cerro Gordo County auditor will be leading it.
