Early Voting

Early voting in Iowa begins 40 days before the election. You may vote early in person at your county auditor's office. Early voting is also called "absentee voting". When early voting first started it was geared toward individuals who were out of the state, ill, or could not make it to the polls on Election Day. Now absentee voting is very common and in Iowa its easy to do!

In Iowa there are no restrictions on who may vote early. Make sure your vote is counted! Request an absentee ballot and vote today! After you request and receive your ballot, you can track it to ensure it gets to the auditor's office!

You can also vote early in person. For more information about absentee voting in person and by mail, click here.
