How do I vote by mail in the state of Iowa?

In order to receive an absentee ballot, you must complete an absentee ballot request form, which is available from your county auditor’s office, at satellite absentee voting locations, online, or from the Secretary of State’s office. Your request must be submitted to your county auditor’s office no later than 5:00 p.m. on the Friday before the election. Once your request is received, your county auditor will send you an absentee ballot via mail, starting forty (40) days before primary and general elections. Your completed absentee ballot must be postmarked no later than the day before the election, and received by the county auditor’s office no later than noon on the Monday following the election.
