Happy Halloween! Be safe!
We have waited four long years for November 3, 2020 to arrive next Tuesday! I have been heartened by the massive early voting that has been taking place here in Johnson County and across the country! It is a very good sign.
Our local election officials are doing a great job protecting our votes, and will securely count them and report the results. I am hopeful that we will make American more just and empathetic again on Tuesday! You know what to do!
FINAL DAYS OF 2020 ELECTION
Folks are fired up about voting this year! So far, 27,292 citizens in Senate District 43 have requested an early ballot, and 24,007 have filled in and returned their ballots to the Johnson County Auditor.
If you have a ballot at home that hasn’t been sent in yet, please fill it out and put it in the mail immediately—or better yet, deliver it to the county auditor as soon as possible to ensure your vote is counted! Vote-by-mail ballots must be postmarked on or before November 2, or delivered to the county auditor by 9 p.m. on Election Day.
Iowans who haven’t requested a vote-by-mail ballot can vote in person now through Election Day. Make sure to bring an approved ID when you go to vote.
Once you submit your ballot, you can track it at sos.iowa.gov/elections/absenteeballotstatus.
In-person early voting
Iowans can vote in person at their county auditor’s office on Thursday, October 29; Friday, October 30; Saturday, October 31, and Monday, November 2. Here’s where to go:
