Iowa auditors' offices open for voting Saturday

If you haven't yet cast your early ballot for Tuesday's Iowa primary, there is still time to do so.

The Wapello County Auditor's Office will be open Saturday from 8am-4pm. Right now, the office has received about 970 absentee ballots.

The deadline to register to vote was last week, but voters will be able to register if they come in on Saturday. They will need to bring identification and proof of residency, like a bill or utility statement, and vote absentee on that day.

"This year, they changed the law. Normally, we're open two Saturdays before the election, but they changed the law and we did not have to be open last Saturday," said Kelly Spurgeon, Wapello County Auditor. "So for the primary, we'll just be open the one Saturday before and for the general, we'll be open two Saturdays before the election."

The deadline to vote absentee is Monday when the office closes at 5pm.

On Election Day, you don't need to bring any identification with you if you are already registered to vote. If you've moved precincts since the last election, you will need to show ID.
