DES MOINES, Iowa — Polk County officials say that more than 1,000 Polk County voters made changes to their voter registrations in the past month in order to participate in the caucuses.

This includes people who newly registered to vote, changed their address or changed their political party affiliation.

But if you made this change since late December, it will not be reflected on the precinct caucus roster.

Officials say you’ll simply need to arrive early to your caucus location to fill out a new/duplicate voter registration form to participate.

“The political parties are well prepared for these voter registration changes and are anticipating them on caucus night.”  Polk County Auditor Jamie Fitzgerald said. “This will be a very easy process, but we are encouraging caucus attendees to arrive early to make these changes or bring a copy of their voter registration form with them to caucus.”

Iowa Caucuses begin at 7 p.m.
