June 2, 2020 Primary
Adams County Auditor and Commissioner of Elections Becky Bissell is encouraging those wishing to vote in the June 2 Primary Election to vote absentee by mail due to the recent concerns with coronavirus and COVID-19. Bissell said polling locations will be open for voting on June 2, however she anticipates many will be combined creating fewer polling locations than normal for a Primary Election. Absentee ballots must be requested in writing and the form is available below and must be received in the Auditor’s Office by 5 PM on May 22. Voters are reminded that for a Primary Election they must choose a political party on the request form in order to receive the correct ballot. Absentee voters are also reminded they will need to provide a personal identification number, normally an Iowa driver’s license or a non-operator’s ID number when requesting an absentee ballot. Please remember that the Auditor’s Office is always available to answer your questions and concerns by phone during regular business hours.
Voter ID Requirements
Iowa voters are required to show an Iowa driver’s license or non-operator ID, U.S. passport, U.S. military ID or veteran’s ID, tribal ID/document or Iowa voter ID card at the polls before they vote.
