 Voter Registration Deadline

Saturday, October 29th is the final day to pre-register to vote in the November 8, 2016 General Election. The office of the county auditor will be open until 5:00 p.m. on that date for eligible electors who wish to register in person. Completed voter registrations may be mailed to the county auditor, and must be received by the above deadline in order to be valid for this election.

Voters who are currently registered need not re-register unless they have changed residences from one county to another. A voter who has changed addresses within the same county as the voter is currently registered may change his/her voter registration address anytime before the election or at the voter's new polling site on Election Day.

Registering to vote is a legal requirement to be eligible to vote in Iowa. To be eligible to register to vote, you must:

  1.   be a United States Citizen
  2.   be an Iowa Resident
  3.   not have been convicted of a felony (or, if you have been convicted of a felony, have had your voting rights restored)
  4.   be at least 17 1/2 years of age (you must be at least 18 years of age to vote)
  5.   not have been judged mentally incompetent by a court
  6.   give up your right to vote in any other place.

 

Iowa law now allows eligible persons to register and vote at the polls on Election Day. An Election Day registrant must provide acceptable proof of identity and current residence in the precinct.

Ways to Return Voted Absentee Ballots

Personal Delivery

The voter may personally deliver a voted absentee ballot to the county auditor's office or may designate any other person to do so. If the voter chooses to designate another person to deliver the voted absentee ballot, the voter may require the other person to fill out a receipt and give it to the voter, which the voter should keep. Iowa law requires the other person to deliver the voted absentee ballot to the county auditor's office by the time the polls close on election night or no later than 72 hours after picking up the ballot from the voter, whichever occurs first.

A voted absentee ballot may be delivered in-person to the county auditor's office during regular business hours.  The county auditor’s office will also be open on Saturday, October 29th and Saturday, November 5th for absentee voting. 

In order to be considered on time to be counted for the November 8, 2016 General Election, a voted absentee ballot that is personally delivered must be physically received in the county auditor's office by the time the polls close at 9:00 p.m. on election night.

A voted absentee ballot cannot be delivered to a polling place on Election Day; it will not be counted. However, a voter may surrender an absentee ballot to the precinct election officials at the polling site on Election Day, and the voter will be allowed to vote at the polls.
