Absentee Ballot (Vote by Mail)
May 13, 2020 marked the first date for voters to request absentee ballots for the state primary and general elections. With Scott County’s roughly 90,000 voters and with COVID-19 infections rising daily, we are urging residents to vote by mail. This will keep you and our election judges safe, and will help us ensure that social distancing does not become an issue.
Apply online to receive your state primary and state general ballots by visiting the Secretary of State's Absentee Ballot Application page.
- For the Primary Election: June 26th is the earliest Scott County can start mailing out ballots.
- For the General Election: September 18th is the earliest Scott County can start mailing out ballots.
