BALLOT BOX: Satellite Voting Open In Polk County
Iowans are already taking part in early voting, but Monday it became even easier to vote early.
Eleven satellite voting locations around Polk County opened up Monday and will be open until October 27th.
Polk County auditor Jamie Fitzgerald says satellite voting has become popular. In 2008, 24,000 voters cast a ballot at satellite locations. That’s more than one-third of the early votes.
At the satellite station, an election official will verify voter registration and give the voter a ballot. Then you vote in a private booth.
The ballot won’t be counted until Election Day.
