A Polk County judge has ruled the state can require voters to show an ID at the polls, but he struck down other voting law changes dealing with absentee ballots. 

The League of United Latin American Citizens and an Iowa State University student challenged sweeping voting law changes passed by Republican lawmakers in 2017.

They argued the voter ID requirement could prevent young, elderly, poor, and people of color from voting because these groups are less likely to have driver’s licenses and other forms of ID.
