Notice of Updated Polling Places
Due to redistricting in 2021, your polling place may have changed. A notice of updated polling places was sent to all registered voter households in mid-October. To verify polling places, voters may enter their address into Linn County's Election Lookup tool.
Polling places will be open on Election Day from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
To ensure safety, Linn County Sheriff’s deputies will be providing a presence at all polling locations throughout the day.
Questions regarding voter registration or absentee voting can be answered by visiting LinnCountyIowa.gov/Vote, emailing Linn County Elections or calling 319-892-5300, option 1.
