LEE COUNTY – County Auditor Denise Fraise reminds voters that some polling places have changed due to recent redistricting across the state. Iowans whose polling place has changed should be on the lookout for a postcard in the mail informing them of the new location.
Lee County will work with the Iowa Secretary of State to send a postcard to every registered voter in the county starting May 18. Notices will be sent to impacted voters or households with a registered voter starting May 18. Under Iowa law, notices are required to be sent to impacted voters between 20 days and seven days prior to the primary election and again prior to the general election.
“If your polling place changed due to redistricting, you’ll be getting a card in the mail informing you of the new location,” Secretary of State Paul Pate said. “We want all eligible Iowans to make their voices heard by voting this year, and it’s important to have a plan if you’re going to the polls on Election Day. Step one is registering to vote. Step two is making sure you know where your polling place is located.”
