Absentee Voting Information

Absentee balloting for the upcoming City & School Election will begin October 13th through the mail and in person in the Auditor's Office.  Absentee ballots by mail can be requested anytime between now and October 18th.  Absentee ballots cannot be mailed out after October 18th, but in-person voting in the Auditor's Office will take place through November 1st during normal business hours.

Due to legislative changes, the Auditor's Office will no longer be able to fill out some of the information on the voting forms.  Voters will be directed to fill out the ballot request portion of the form in the Courthouse rotunda before entering the Auditor's Office.  They will present the form and their ID before receiving a ballot.

The Election Day voting process has not changed.  Voters will go to their normal polling locations and present their ID to receive a ballot.  On Election Day, November 2nd, the polls will be open from 7:00am - 8:00pm.

Due to the Decennial Census, voters are reminded that their polling location may change NEXT YEAR for election in 2022.  These changes will NOT affect the 2021 City & School Election.

Questions about voting or other election related inquiries can be directed to the County Auditor's Office at auditor@co.winneshiek.ia.us or (563) 382-5085.
