Absentee voting for city elections begins in county auditor’s office


ADEL — Dallas County Auditor and Commissioner of Elections Gene Krumm announced this week absentee ballots for the Nov. 3 city elections will be available to be cast in the auditor’s office from now until Nov. 2.

Absentee ballots may be cast in the Dallas County auditor’s office at 910 Court St. in Adel during regular office hours, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Absentee ballots must be requested in writing. Forms are available in the auditor’s office, on the Dallas County website  and on the Iowa Secretary of State’s website.

Ballots returned through the mail must be postmarked by midnight Nov. 2, although Krumm encourages those returning ballots via the U.S. Postal Service to mail them before Oct. 30.

All requests for mailed ballots must be received by the auditor by 5 p.m. Oct. 30.

Regular city elections in Dallas County are held every two years.  At city elections, voters elect city officials, including filling any vacancies in office that may have occurred. Voters also decide on applicable public measures.

All eligible voters who live inside the corporate limits of a city are eligible to vote in the city election. An eligible voter must be a U.S. citizen, a resident of Iowa and be at least 18 years old. Ineligible voters include convicted felons with unrestored voting rights, individuals currently judged incompetent to vote by a court and individuals claiming the right to vote elsewhere.
