Those wishing to cast an in-person absentee ballot for Tuesday’s special election in Floyd County have until 5 p.m. (08.02)to do so at the courthouse in Charles City.
County Auditor and Commissioner of Elections Gloria Carr reminds voters they must provide proof of identity to cast a ballot, whether it be in-person absentee or at your precinct poll tomorrow. Polling places in all eight precincts in the county will be open Tuesday starting at 7 a.m. and will close at 8 p.m. under Iowa’s new voting law.
The new legislation also requires that any absentee ballots that were mailed to voters must be received in the county auditor’s office by 8 p.m. on election day. Carr adds that voters who reside in Floyd County, but are not registered to vote, may vote in the auditor’s office prior to election day or at the polls as an Election Day Registrant by providing proof of identity and residency.
Tuesday’s special election puts three plans before voters on how Board of Supervisor members are elected in the county. Currently, all three positions are elected at-large, which is listed as Plan 1 on the ballot. Plan 2 calls for “at-large, but with equal-population residence requirements for the members.” Plan 3 calls for “from single member equal-population districts in which the electors of each district shall select one member who must reside in that district.”
