October 8, 2020Review your options for early voting for the upcoming election.
Can someone else return my absentee ballot for me?
Yes. You may permit anyone to return your absentee ballot for you. You may also request a receipt from the person returning your ballot.
Do absentee ballots even get counted?
Yes. There is a myth that absentee ballots only get counted if the election is close, however this is not true. Under Iowa law every ballot must be counted; in fact, absentee ballots are the first vote results reported on election night.
