How did you hear about early voting at HyVee?

Getting the word out on early voting sites aka satellite voting is challenging.  Today, I asked 43 of the 207 voters how they found out about early voting at the HyVee on Wilson Avenue SW in Cedar Rapids.  They told me:

14 – received a postcard reminder from the Auditor’s Office

9 – saw the perimeter Vote Here signs

9 – were informed by friends or family

4 – were referred by greeters at the entryway of HyVee

2 – received phone calls from a candidate or party

2 – were notified by canvassers knocking on their doors

2 – found the satellite site online

1 – specifically found the satellite site on KCRG’s website

In-person early voting (absentee voting) versus voting by mail saves taxpayers about $3.00 in USPS postage per vote cast.  My goal for satellites is a minimum of 200 voters per six hour shift.  Today, we met the goal while competing with Hawkeye Football.

Thank you voters!  And Thank You precinct elections officials for working on a Saturday!
