***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.***

Butler County Auditor Lizbeth Williams told The Iowa Standard the 2020 general election will feature eight open polling places, which is the same as a typical presidential election year. No changes have been made and she has the necessary workers needed.


Mark Maxwell, the Shelby County auditor, said there will be nine polling places open, which is the same as a typical presidential election year. He too has the workers needed.

Cedar County Auditor Cari Dauber said she’ll have 12 polling locations open, which is the same as all general elections. And poll workers are no problem for her either.

Voters can find their polling place at this website.

Iowans can sign up to be poll workers here.
