FAQ

Q.

Can someone else return my absentee ballot for me?

A.

Yes. You may permit anyone to return your absentee ballot for you. You may also request a receipt from the person returning your ballot.

Q.

Do absentee ballots even get counted?

A.

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.
