FAQ

Q.

Do absentee ballots even get counted?

A.

Yes. There is a myth that absentee ballots only get counted if the election is close, however this is not true. Under Iowa law every ballot must be counted; in fact, absentee ballots are the first vote results reported on election night.

Q.

Can I update my voter registration over the phone?

A.

No. All updates to voter registration must be made in writing or online through the Iowa DOT if you have an Iowa driver’s license.
