DES MOINES, Iowa – Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate asks Iowans who receive a “No Activity in 4 Years” mailing from his office to respond quickly.

The “No Activity” notices are being sent to voters who have not voted in any election and have not updated their voter registration information in the past four years. The purpose of the mailing is to ensure Iowa’s voter rolls are up-to-date.

“This mailing is part of the routine process we undertake to ensure our voter rolls are as accurate as possible. It’s a crucial component for having clean and fair elections across the state,” Secretary Pate said. 

The “No Activity in 4 Years” mailing is required by federal law. Iowans who receive the mailing should check the relevant box, sign the card and return it quickly to their county auditor. If the voter no longer lives at that address, the current resident should note that information on the card and place it in the mail.

Inactive voters can update their registration status to active anytime, including on Election Day.

A sample of the “2019 No Activity in 4 Years” mailing is available at this link.
