DES MOINES — Iowans who want to participate in early voting can begin casting ballots for the 2023 City-School Election on Wednesday, Oct. 18.
This marks the start of the absentee voting period and the first day Iowans can vote in person at their county election office.
October 18 is also the first day county auditors can mail absentee ballots to voters who requested them.
So far, more than 5,500 Iowans have requested an absentee ballot.
The deadline to request one to be mailed is 5 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 23.
“We want to see every Iowan participate in the upcoming City-School Election, and the best way to be successful in voting is to have a plan for how you want to vote,” said Secretary Pate. “Iowans have several secure ways to vote, including early and in-person at their county auditor’s office. Iowans should make a plan early and take the necessary steps to ensure their voice is heard this November.”
Iowans can vote in person at their county auditor’s office beginning Wednesday, Oct. 18.
Iowans can also vote absentee by mail or in person at the polls on Election Day.
