Early voting for Iowa primary begins Monday

  • Poll Most Americans say country is doing well

Farley says almost 50-percent of those who voted in the county primary voted outside their normal area or precinct. Early voting in Iowa used to start 40 days before an election, but the early voting period was trimmed by the Iowa legislature as part of the new restrictions on voting it passed previous year.

Voters can choose either a Republican or Democratic ballot but not both, regardless of political party affiliation.

"In other states, we've seen that people show up, see longer lines and decide to go home without voting", Weipert said.

Election Day for the primary is May 8, 2018.

The only exception to that rule will be for voters whose address has changed since the last time they voted and who have not notified the board of that change, Mace said. No Democrat is running in the general election, meaning whoever wins that primary race will likely take the congressional seat.

Democrats have six candidates in the primary in high-profile races, like governor.


Who understands the challenges and complexities of the state?

Walker County - 8:30 a.m.to 4:30 p.m. Monday - Friday, Saturday, May 12th 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. and May 14th-18th 8:30 a.m.to 4:30 p.m.

Polls open at 6:30 a.m. and close at 7:30 p.m.

Friday, June 1, 2:30 p.m.to 6:30 p.m. McGuire said if she is elected, she'd seek to make it easier to vote early.

Also, the deadline to request an absentee ballot by mail is May 25th.

This year, Iowa voters will have a smaller period in which to cast ballots before an election, just 29 days.
