The Pottawattamie County Auditor's Office will be closed to the public indefinitely or until conditions have significantly improved.
In an effort to keep our voters and Precinct Election Officials safe on Election Day we will be combining our polling places into just a handful of Regional Polling Places. For a breakdown of where you will vote on Election Day take a look at the Regional Polling Places section on the 2020 Primary Election Page. Please note that these are based off of where you normally vote and voters must go to the regional polling location that they have been assigned to.
To avoid potential long lines on Election Day and to avoid unnecessary contact, we encourage you to take advantage of absentee voting by mail and vote from the comfort and safety of your own home.
To cut down on unnecessary contact and to limit exposure at polling places on Election Day we strongly recommend you consider requesting an absentee ballot may be mailed to you. Submit your absentee ballot request and you will receive your ballot in the mail where you can vote from the comfort and safety of your own home and return it in the mail for free!
Want us to mail you an Absentee Ballot Request form? Complete the online form and an absentee ballot request form will be mailed to you. Then all you need to do is fill it out and send it back!
You can also download an absentee ballot request form and mail it in, call our office at (712) 328-5700, option 3, or email firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name and mailing address and we will mail you a request form. You can also visit our absentee voting page for more information.
You may now drop off your voted absentee ballot to our new drop box located outside of the Courthouse.
Due to the temporary Courthouse closure, In-Person Absentee Voting will be available at the Elections Building, located at 508 S 6th St. In-Person Absentee Voting is open May 4th through June 1st from 8am - 4:30pm.
To avoid lines and to avoid unnecessary contact we encourage you to take advantage of absentee voting by mail and vote from the comfort and safety of your own home.
