Absentee ballot request deadline is Friday

DES MOINES (KWWL)--  Voters who still want to fill out an absentee ballot have just a few days to do so.

Friday at 5 p.m. is the deadline to request an absentee ballot by mail. If you miss the deadline, you still have the option to vote early in-person at your county auditor's office or at a satellite location. To download an application, visit www.IowaVotes.gov and click on the ''Absentee Voting'' link.

Completed ballots returned by mail must be postmarked by Monday, November 1 and received no later than Monday, November 8. Ballots may also be hand delivered to the county auditor's office until polls close on Election Day.

As of this Wednesday morning, 355,192 Iowans have requested an absentee ballot and of those ballots, 254,836 have been received back by auditors' offices. 

In the 2006 General Election, 242,385 Iowans voted absentee. Four years prior in the 2002 General Election, 242,357 voted absentee.
