General Election Day Tuesday, polls open 7 a.m.-9 p.m.

Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz is reminding Iowans that polls will be open for the general election from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. statewide on Tuesday, Nov. 4.

“I encourage all eligible Iowans to take full advantage of their right to vote by registering to vote and casting a ballot,” Schultz said. “Every vote counts and it’s important that Iowans participate to make sure their voices are heard.”

All county auditors’ offices will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for absentee voting on Saturday, Nov. 1.

Iowans who did not register to vote by the Saturday, Oct. 25, may use election day registration procedures to register to vote and cast a ballot when voting early in-person or at the polls on Election Day.

Iowans looking to see if they are registered to vote or who are interested in finding their polling place can do so through the “Am I Registered to Vote” feature on the Iowa Secretary of State’s website.

Iowans looking to have voting resources at their fingertips can download the Iowa Secretary of State's comprehensive app called Iowa SOS available for both Android and Apple devices. From the Iowa SOS app, Iowans can do the following:

  • Check voter registration information,
  • Fill out the State of Iowa Official Voter Registration Form,
  • Find the correct polling place for the general election,
  • Request an absentee ballot,
  • Track an absentee ballot,
  • Set email or calendar reminders for upcoming elections,
  • Report voter fraud,
  • Contact local county auditors, and
  • Contact the Iowa Secretary of State's office.
