Obtaining An Absentee Ballot

Question


How do I obtain an absentee ballot for an upcoming election?

Answer


Voters wishing to receive an absentee ballot by mail must submit a request in writing to the Auditor's Office. Deadlines vary with each election. The request must include:
  • Voter's Name
  • Voter's Address
  • Signature of the person(s) requesting the ballot
  • Name and date of the election
  • Address where the ballot is to be mailed if it is to be mailed to an address other than where the voter is registered.
Mail the signed request form to:
Hardin County Auditor's Office
1215 Edgington Avenue, Suite 1
Eldora, Iowa 50627
