County auditor reminds voters

Voters are reminded that Friday, May 22, is the last day to request an absentee ballot in the mail.

Voters are encouraged to use this option for the 2020 Primary to help minimize person to person contact.

In-person absentee voting will still be available in the County Auditor’s Office through Monday. June 1. Weekday hours are 8 a. m. to 4 p. m. The Auditor’s Office also will be open Saturday, May 30, from 7 a. m. to 3 p. m. for early voting.

Voting on Election Day, June 2, will be from 7 a. m. to 9 p. m. There will be a reduced number of polling sites:

Voters that normally vote in Ossian or Calmar will be voting at the Calmar Lutheran Church.

Voters that normally vote in Ridgeway or Fort Atkinson will be voting at the Ridgeway Community Center.

All other voters will be voting at the Courthouse.

“Voters using in-person voting options should practice appropriate social distancing when doing so,” Winneshiek County Auditor Ben Steines said. “For the safety of other voters and poll workers, please do not crowd the polling location and also consider bringing your own blue or black pen to use to mark your ballot.”

Sample ballots, polling information, election forms and other election information is available at winneshiekcounty.org.Questions can be directed to auditor@ co. winneshiek. ia. us or 563-382-5085.
