Primary Election

Absentee Voting by Mail

Secretary of State, Paul Pate, is encouraging Iowans to cast ballots by mail, in response to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.  If a voter wishes to vote by mail in the June 2, 2020 Primary Election, this form must be received in our office no later than Friday, May 22, 2020 at 5 p.m.  Absentee ballots can will be mailed starting Thursday, April 23, 2020, which is the earliest date allowed by law.

In-Person Absentee Voting

In-person absentee voting will begin in the Floyd County Auditor’s Office on Monday, May 4, 2020.  Our office continues to closely monitor the situation around in-person voting due to COVID-19 and will update this page with any changes. 

Election Day

Polls will open election day from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.; however, there most likely will be fewer than usual polling locations to help ensure the safety of our precinct election works and voters.  The Auditor’s office continues having discussions and is working daily to determine what changes will be needed and how to best implement those changes.
