Iowa (KWQC) – Absentee voting begins in Iowa on Wednesday.
This is the first day to vote in person at the county election office, and auditors can mail ballots to voters who have requested them.
So far, more than 144,000 Iowans have requested an absentee ballot, according to Clerk Paul Pate. The deadline to request an absentee ballot for mailing is October 24 VoterReady.Iowa.gov.
“Election Day is fast approaching and it’s important to have a plan for how you want to vote,” said Secretary Pate. You can vote by mail, in person at your county election office, or at the polling stations on Election Day. I encourage you to find out which option is best for you and take the necessary steps to make your vote count.”
County auditors must receive your absentee ballot by 8 p.m. on election day, November 8.
