***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.***
Only slight changes have been made in O’Brien County and Buchanan County.
Barb Rohwer, the O’Brien County Auditor, said there will be seven locations open this year as opposed to the normal number of nine. No polling places have changed in the last week.
In Buchanan County, auditor Cindy Gosse said the normal number of 15 polling sites has been trimmed to 10.
Both counties cited social distancing concerns as reasoning for the differences this year compared to other years.
