The Election Services Department of the Linn County Auditor’s Office will be open on Saturday, May 31 in support of the June 3, 2014 Primary Elections. Absentee ballots will be available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. These hours are in addition to the normal Monday through Friday office hours for absentee voting.

In a Primary Election, Democratic and Republican Party voters select the candidates they want to see move on to the General Election ballot. Voters must be registered as a Democrat or a Republican in order to receive that party’s ballot. Voters may register with a party or change their party affiliation when requesting a ballot.

Since the pre-registration deadline for this election has passed, anyone not currently registered must follow Election Day registration procedures by providing acceptable proof of their identity and residency.
