Due to COVID-19, the Linn County Auditor’s Office strongly encourages voters to vote by mail. To support this, the Auditor’s Office will mail absentee request forms to approximately 145,000 active, registered voters in Linn County in late July or early August. A postage-paid return envelope will be included.
As an alternative to mail, the Linn County Auditor’s Office will have four secure drop boxes for voters to deposit their absentee ballot request forms and ballots. The drop boxes will be installed in mid-July and will be located at:
In accordance with state law, the Auditor’s Office will mail ballots starting Monday, October 5. Voters have until 5 p.m. on Saturday, October 24 to submit absentee request forms.
Early, in-person, absentee voting will be available from October 5 through November 2. Due to COVID-19, the Linn County Auditor’s Office is still determining details for in-person voting.
In-person voting locations will be open on election day, November 3. However, Linn County will be combining locations, so many regular voting locations will change. In October, the Linn County Auditor’s Office will mail postcards to voters indicating the correct election day polling location.
