Johnson County reminds voters of 24 hour drop-off boxes


With just over two weeks left until the November 3rd general election, Johnson County officials are reminding voters of their 24 hour drop-off boxes for absentee voters.

Registered voters in Johnson County can drop off completed ballots 24 hours a day, seven days a week in drop boxes located south of the Johnson County Administration Building, 913 S. Dubuque Street, Iowa City.

Voters who have requested mailed ballots for the 2020 General Election can use the drop boxes instead of mailing their ballots back, and do not need to wait in line for drive-through early voting at the Johnson County Health and Human Services building parking ramp located at 855 S. Dubuque Street, Iowa City. The entrance to the two drop boxes is from the east side of the building and traffic is one way from east to west, exiting onto Clinton Street. The boxes are positioned in opposite lanes so that either a driver or a passenger can drop off ballots. Both boxes are locked, secure, under surveillance and checked multiple times a day.

Completed ballots may be dropped off until the close of polls at 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 3rd. The Auditor’s Office recommends dropping off ballots as soon as possible so voters can be contacted if there are any issues with a ballot.
