Auditor Batz Clarifies Absentee Ballot Request Forms
Several different organizations are sending absentee ballot request forms to voters in Iowa. Their lists may not contain the most current information. These absentee ballot request forms will be accepted if completed and received in our office. I apologize for any confusion this may have caused. The Iowa Secretary of State will be sending out absentee ballot request forms to all current registered voters at the end of August. You only need to fill out one absentee ballot request form. Please make sure to fill out all required fields.
If you have any questions, or want to verify your voter registration or absentee ballot request,
contact the Auditor’s office, 712-297-7741.
