June 2 Primary Election & Your Absentee Ballot

null The Auditor’s Office is already processing a record number of absentee ballots for the upcoming primary election for congressional, state, legislative, and county offices…is yours one of them? If so, good for getting your vote out there! If you are unsure about what to do with absentee voting, here are your options:

  • If you’ve already received your absentee ballot, you can still mail it in, but it must be postmarked by June 1.
  • If you’ve requested your ballot but haven’t received it yet, you can check its status on the Track Your Absentee Ballot page of the Iowa Secretary of State website. If your search comes up blank, send an email to auditor@co.johnson.ia.us and they can get you an update and make sure it is being processed in time.
  • If you would like to request an absentee ballot, you must do so by 5 p.m. on Friday, May 22. Fill out the PDF form and return it by mail, or deliver it in person to the auditor’s office.

Please note, party registration is required to vote in this election, and you must declare as a Democrat or Republican. Voters who are already registered as No Party, Libertarian, or Green will be contacted by the auditor’s office. If you’re not registered to vote, the deadline to pre-register is May 22, although you may still register on election day at your polling place by bringing proof of ID and residence. There are several ways to register before the election.

While the auditor's office is encouraging voting by mail, most regular polling places will be open on June 2. If you don’t know where to vote for this election, the auditor’s website has a list of polling places as well as a map locator.

If you would like to contact the Johnson County Auditor’s Office, you can call them at 319-356-6004, Monday-Friday, 7:45 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The Library can also help answer questions and find your polling place, so feel free to contact us as well.
