The 2020 election will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2020. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. To find your polling place, visit the Iowa Secretary of State’s website.
If voters requested an absentee ballot, it must be received by the Polk County auditor by the time polls close on Nov. 3 at 9 p.m., or postmarked by Nov. 2 and received by the Polk County auditor's office by noon Monday, Nov. 9. The Postal Service has recommended mailing ballots at least a week before the due date but given concerns this year with the volume of ballots and other issues, mailing the ballot earlier is better. The Iowa secretary of state office has a ballot tracker on its website. An absentee ballot may also be returned in person to the county auditor’s office and many counties have set up a dropbox outside the auditor’s office to accept completed ballots.
Voters will vote in the new City Hall building. Voters will access the building from the driveway off NW 63rd Pl. Future access points to City Hall from Merle Hay Road and NW 62nd Avenue will be completed later this fall and next spring; in the interim, detour signs are in place to help voters navigate the area.
Residents and visitors to City Hall can park in the parking lot just to the east or south of the new building, and the primary entrance doors face to the east.
