FAQ

Q.

I lost my absentee ballot; can I just go vote on Election Day?

A.

Yes. When you go to vote, a poll worker will verify with the auditor’s office that your absentee ballot has not been returned. If it is confirmed that the auditor’s office has not received a ballot from you then you will be given a new ballot to vote there.

Q.

Can an independent vote in a primary election?

A.

Yes and No. In Iowa, you must be a member of a political party (in 2020: Republican and Democrat) to vote in a primary election. However, anyone can change parties on Election Day and vote. For independents to vote they must declare a political party.
