The Elections department will be mailing out new voter cards (envelope shown above) to all active voters in Pottawattamie County in the coming weeks. The new cards list the new polling places for the now combined City and School Election. Starting this fall, voters will use their general election polling place for all regularly scheduled elections.
Included with the new voter card is information regarding the combination of city and school elections into a single election in November of odd-numbered years. The city primary election in October of odd-numbered years has not changed. For more information on the combination of city and school elections, see our article on the subject.
Voters in CB 13 and Macedonia should pay extra attention as their polling place has been moved. The polling place for CB 13 will now be on the second floor of the Union Pacific Railroad Museum (200 Pearl St, Council Bluffs, IA 51503), moved from The Center. The polling place in Macedonia will now be at the DeWitt Community Center (404 Potter St, Macedonia, IA 51549), moved from the Macedonia City Hall.
If any of your information on the card is incorrect or needs updated, you can mail in a new voter registration form or update your registration online so long as you have an Iowa Driver's License or state issued non-operator's ID.
