Absentee ballot requests for the General Election

posted on 8/13/20

It has come to our attention that many households are receiving voter registration forms or absentee ballot request forms for deceased loved ones. Unfortunately, those mailings come from outside sources who are using outdated information and voter lists.

If you receive any of these forms and would like to verify that your loved one is no longer registered to vote, please call the Crawford County Auditor's Office at (712) 263-3045.

We apologize for the inconvenience that these mailings may cause, but rest assured that our office is here to answer any questions you may have.
