Sunday Funday: Don’t Forget To Vote Edition!

vote by mail

hat tip to EarlG at democraticunderground.com

A gentle reminder that Iowa’s primary vote officially takes place this Tuesday, June 2nd. Or perhaps it would be best said that Tuesday is your last chance to vote, since absentee balloting has been available for the past month. You can find your polling place here.   This year it may be a good idea to check the SoS website to see where you vote as it has been reported that fewer polling locations will be open because a lighter in person vote is expected and poll workers will be hard to get.

If you sent in an absentee ballot, you can check to see if the auditor got it here.    

We need our best candidates out there for the general election this fall!

    I used to mail newsletters from one Iowa town to other Iowa towns, and I got used to fast mail service. As I found out the hard way when requesting an absentee ballot last month, more time needs to be allowed now. If you want to vote by mail, allow plenty of time.
