What if my absentee ballot request is received after 10/27?


What happens if my ABRF (absentee ballot request form) is received by Linn County Election Services after 10/27? You will receive a letter.

Why? Because the Iowa Legislature and Governor approved a change in Iowa law in 2017.

How many prospective voters will be disenfranchised because they did not know the law and thought they could submit ABRFs through 5pm on the Friday before the election?

Our office expects to receive over 1,000 requests for absentee ballots between October 29th and November 5th that we CANNOT fulfill due to the change in the law. Please contact your legislators if you have any questions or concerns. –Joel D. Miller – Linn County Auditor
