LINN COUNTY ELECTIONS OFFICE URGES ABSENTEE VOTING


Absentee Ballot Request Forms Available for the November General Election

Absentee ballot request forms are now available for the November 3, 2020 General Election. Absentee ballot request forms may be found at www.linncounty.org.

Due to COVID-19, the Linn County Auditor’s Office strongly encourages voters to vote by mail. To support this, the Auditor’s Office has mailed absentee request forms to approximately 145,000 active, registered voters in Linn County in late July and early August. A postage-paid return envelope was included.

As an alternative to mail, the Linn County Auditor’s Office has secure drop boxes for voters to deposit their absentee ballot request forms and ballots. Both drop-boxes are secure and have 24-Hour camera surveillance.

Voters can use these drop-boxes instead of sending their ballots back through the mail. The drop boxes are located at:

  • Jean Oxley Public Service Building parking lot, 935 2nd Street S.W., Cedar Rapids
  • Linn County Building across the street from the Jean Oxley Building, 823 3rd St. SW

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 provides the following details for in-person voting:
