The Election Division of the Black Hawk County Auditor’s Office will operate a satellite voting center at Maucker Student Union on the University of Northern Iowa campus in Cedar Falls.
Satellite voting allows people to vote prior to the election at a location other than the county courthouse. The satellite may be established by the Auditor’s Office or by a petition with the signatures of 100 eligible voters.
The voting will take place on Thursday, October 22, at Maucker Student Union, in the southeast corner of the Coffeehouse. Ballots will be available for all Cedar Falls City residents. Voting is scheduled from 10 AM- 4 PM. The votes cast at satellites are absentee ballots, and voters have to fill out both a ballot application and an affidavit envelope. When they are done voting they need to seal the ballot in the envelope and put it in the ballot box. These ballots will be counted with other absentee ballots on election day.
Voter registration forms will also be available at the satellite for persons who are unregistered or have moved. The voter registration form requires your driver’s license number, non-operator driver’s license number or the last four digits of your Social Security number.
