If you requested an absentee ballot by mail, you must vote the ballot you were issued by mail. Voters may bring the ballot to the absentee in-person site to cast the ballot or the courthouse drop box or auditor's office.
If your ballot has been spoiled or lost, you can go to the Absentee In-Person site (124 2nd St NE in Waverly) and vote. For more information, call 319.352.0340.
If you choose to go to the Absentee In-Person site and have not received your absentee ballot by mail, you will be asked to complete a State of Iowa Voter Statement. It is imperative that all ballots are tracked and accounted for by the auditor's office. We appreciate your understanding of Iowa's voting laws.
