Voter Lists

Voter data is made available for political purposes only. Use of voter registration information for commercial purposes, such as debt collection or sales, or for any purpose other than those allowed by law is a serious misdemeanor (Code of Iowa, Section 48A.39).  Persons purchasing lists must specify their political purpose.  Our office can produce voter lists for Clayton County or for any state legislative or school district which includes part of Clayton County.  Congressional district and statewide lists may be ordered from the Iowa Secretary of State.

Note: Voter list prices were standardized statewide in May 2006.  There is a minimum $10.00 charge for any voter list.  All list requests are charged for data. This charge is $0.50 per 1000 records and is based on current information at the time the request is processed.
