***Rumors are swirling Iowa about polling location closures and changes. We’ve contacted the county auditors in Iowa to find out what is actually happening in their county.***

Keokuk County Auditor Christy Bates said Keokuk county will have 10 polling places open on election day. Typically during a Presidential election, there are 15.

Bates added that she has had to notify voters that their polling place changed after Tuesday, Oct. 27. Changes have been published and posted on the Keokuk County website.

Changes were necessary because some locations were too small to allow for social distancing.

Keokuk County has enough poll workers to administer the election.

Voters can find their polling place at this website.

Iowans can sign up to be poll workers here.
