Friday, Oct. 28, is the final day to pre-register to vote in the Nov. 8, Regular City Election.
The office of the Cerro Gordo County Auditor will be open an extra half hour – until 5 p.m. – on that date for eligible electors who wish to register in person. Completed voter registrations may be mailed to the county auditor, but must be either received by the above deadline or postmarked on/before Monday, Oct. 24 in order to be valid for the Nov. 8 Regular City Election.
Those currently registered to vote in Cerro Gordo County do not need to re-register unless they have changed residences from one county to another. If a voter has changed addresses within the same county as where they are currently registered to vote, then they may change their voter registration address anytime before the election or at their new polling site on Election Day.
Iowa law now allows eligible persons to register and vote at the polls on Election Day. An Election Day registrant must provide acceptable proof of identity and current residence in the precinct.
Persons with questions regarding voter registration, absentee voting, or the 2011 Regular City Election may contact the office of the county auditor at 641-421-3041 or visit the Cerro Gordo County website at www.co.cerro-gordo.ia.us.
