Johnson County Auditor: Mailing about unreturned absentee ballots may be outdated
IOWA CITY, Iowa (KCRG) - The Johnson County Auditor’s Office says a recent campaign mailing that states a voter’s absentee ballot hasn’t been returned may be outdated by the time it arrives.
Travis Weipert’s office says the mailing just means that it has not checked in the voter’s ballot yet at the time the mailing went out.
The mailing also tells voters to date their signature on their ballot, and while that won’t hurt anything, it is not actually required. Voters should follow the instructions that came with the absentee ballot.
Voters can track the status of their ballot on the Secretary of State’s website, which updates overnight.
Alternatively, voters can call the Johnson County Auditor’s Office at 319-356-6004.
