Election Reminder to Palo Residents Displaced by the Flood

PALO (NEWS RELEASE) -- The Linn County Auditor's Office would like to remind displaced Palo residents of the following:

Until you have established a permanent residence, your voter registration address can be that of your evacuated home.

This information applies to those registering for the first time and to previously registered voters.

Eligible voters in the Palo Special Election must have a voter registration address that is within the city limits of Palo. Any false statement from a voter about their eligibility for an election is a criminal offense.

New registrations and address changes must be submitted in writing. To register to vote, to change a residential address or to add a mailing address, please submit a voter registration form to the following address:
