Satellite Absentee Voting

Satellite Absentee Voting

Some county auditors use satellite absentee voting stations to provide in-person absentee voting at other places other than the auditor’s office.

You must mark the absentee ballot at the satellite station and leave it with the officials. You cannot take the ballot home with you.

All satellite stations must be accessible to people with disabilities.

To find out whether a satellite station is planned for an election, contact your county auditor.

The county auditor is not required to provide satellite stations. You may request a satellite station by filing a petition with the county auditor. The petition must contain signatures of at least 100 eligible electors living in the jurisdiction. The petition must be filed with the county auditor conducting the election by the filing deadlines listed in §53.11, which varies by election type.
