Sep 3rd, 2020

The Drop Box at the Winneshiek County Courthouse is considered a valid way to return a voted ballot.  The drop box can also be used to return Absentee Ballot Request forms, Voter Registration forms, or any election related material.  The drop box can also be used to deliver documents, payments, or other correspondence to ANY office in the Courthouse.  During absentee voting, only the Auditor’s Office will have keys for the drop box, but will distribute other materials to the other offices.  The drop box is made of heavy duty material, securely fastened, and under 24/7 video monitoring.


With the current health concerns the Drop Box is an excellent way to return materials to Courthouse offices, and avoid person to person contact.  All Voters and other Courthouse business should be encouraged to use the drop box when delivering correspondence that doesn’t require contact.  The drop box is safe, secure, and convenient.


Questions about this or other election concerns can be directed to the County Auditor at auditor@co.winneshiek.ia.us or (563) 382-5085.
