Pre-registration deadline approaches for Nov. 8 city election

October 8, 2011
Reinbeck Courier

Grundy County Auditor Rhonda R. Deters wants to inform voters that the pre-registration deadline is October 28 for the November 8 City Elections in Beaman, Conrad, Dike, Grundy Center, Holland, Morrison, Reinbeck, Stout, and Wellsburg.

If you are not already registered to vote, you may do so in one of two ways:

Register to vote by mail: Voter registration forms are available on the Grundy County website under the heading "Where do I .? Click on "Register to Vote" to download a voter registration form. The completed form should be delivered or mailed to your County Auditor. Mailed voter registration forms which are post-marked by October 24 are considered on time to pre-register even if they are received after October 28.

Register to vote in person at your County Auditor's Office.

The "SAME DAY VOTER REGISTRATION" law allows a person who is eligible to register to vote, to register and vote on election day (November 8, 2011) by going to the polling place for the voting precinct in which the individual resides and completing a voter registration application, make written oath, and providing proof of identity and residence. However, this "SAME DAY VOTER REGISTRATION" procedure may slow up the voting experience for voters choosing to wait until November 8th to register and vote at the polling site.

To make the voting experience easier and less time consuming on November 8th, County Auditor Rhonda R. Deters recommends that you pre-register to vote with your County Auditor by the October 28 deadline. By pre-registering, your name will already appear on the election register at your polling site, and you will avoid the time consuming process required for "SAME DAY VOTER REGISTRATION".

Contact the Grundy County Auditor's Office at 319-824-3122 if you have any questions.
