Absentee ballots for the September 13, 2011 School Elections are now available from the Scott County Auditor’s Office.  Mail-in absentee ballots may be requested by completing an absentee ballot request form and returning it to the Auditor’s Office.  Our office mails out ballots within 24 hours of receiving the request.  Also, over the counter voting is available in the Auditor’s Office from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The deadline to pre-register to vote in the School Elections is Friday, September 2, 2011.  Those interested can register at the Scott County Auditor’s Office or at a driver’s license station.  Mail-in registrations post marked on or before August 29, 2011 will also be accepted for pre-registration.

After Friday, those interested in voting, but who are not pre-registered, may register to vote at the polls on Election Day or at the Auditor’s Office and vote an absentee ballot prior to Election Day.  Those registering in this manner are required to provide proof of their identity through a picture identity card, such as a valid driver’s license, and proof of their residency if the identity card does not list a current  address. 

Absentee ballot request forms, sample ballots, voter registration forms and details for Election Day registration are available on the Auditor’s webpage:
