Iowa residents can begin voting early in this year’s primary elections at their respective courthouses today.

Three parties will be represented: Republican, Democratic and Libertarian. Voters can vote in only one party. They must be registered under that party to vote in the primaries, but they can switch their party registration before and after voting.

The primary election day is June 5. Early voting ends June 4.

Those interested in voting early can either do so in person at the auditor’s office at their respective county courthouse, or from home by requesting an absentee ballot and mailing it back to the auditor’s office or dropping it off there.

Residents have until 5 p.m. May 25 to fill out a form requesting that an absentee ballot be mailed to them. Ballots need to be returned to the courthouse by June 4, or postmarked by June 4 and received by June 11.

Typically, absentee voting can be completed in person at the county auditor’s office during normal business hours — 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The offices will be open until 5 p.m. on May 25 and June 1, and on June 4 at some offices as well. All auditor’s offices will be open for at least eight hours on Saturday, June 2, for absentee voting. Those hours can vary — they be 8 a.m.-4 p.m. for Carroll County, 7 a.m.-3 p.m. in Greene County and 9 a.m.-5 p.m. in Sac County, for instance.

Voters can register to vote the same day they vote with a current photo ID that includes a current address. Photo ID is required to vote as well. More information about acceptable IDs is available on the Iowa Secretary of State’s website.

Crawford County will offer a satellite voting location at the Kiron City Hall from noon-6 p.m. May 23.
