You may request a mailed ballot beginning 70 days before an election. The only elections for which we can currently accept requests are the March 1, 2022 Clear Creek Amana and Mid-Prairie bond elections and the March 15, 2022 North Liberty special election. Requests for later elections will be rejected and returned to the voter, as required by law.

First day to request ballots:

You must complete a separate request form for each election in which you want a mailed ballot.

You cannot submit an Absentee Ballot Request Form online. Forms may be printed, picked up at our office, or we can mail one to you. Forms must be completed, including signature and date, and returned either through the mail or delivered to our office no later than 5:00PM 15 days prior to the election.

Our address is:

Johnson County Auditor
913 S Dubuque St
Iowa City IA 52240
