Friday Deadline to Request Absentee Ballots by Mail for House District 25 Special Election


Des Moines – Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz is reminding eligible Iowans in House District 25 that Friday, January 3, is the deadline to request an absentee ballot by mail for the upcoming special election on Tuesday, January 7.

To receive an absentee ballot in the mail for the special election, local county auditors must receive the completed absentee ballot request form no later than 5 p.m. on Friday, January 3.

"I hope all eligible Iowans in Iowa House District 25 take full advantage of their right to vote in the upcoming special election," Schultz said. "The deadline for local county auditors to receive requested absentee ballots is Friday, January 3."

Iowans can download the State of Iowa Official Absentee Ballot Request Form from www.sos.iowa.gov and return it to your local county auditor's office or visit your local county auditor's office to fill out a paper copy.

Iowans in House District 25 that do not request an absentee ballot by the deadline can vote in person at the local county auditor's office between now and January 6, or head to the polls on Tuesday, January 7.

Iowans with further questions regarding their voter registration or the location of their polling place are encouraged to contact their local county auditor's office.
