Iowa Redesigns Absentee Ballot

Iowa election officials hope a new design for the absentee ballot request form will remove any uncertainty voters might have — especially college students. Secretary of State spokesman, Chance McElhaney, says with the new form it will be clearer where the voter is registered to vote, and where the ballot should be mailed.

McElheney says auditors would sometimes have to call students to clarify that they’re registered in their hometowns.

Another change on the form clarifies that a person with power of attorney is not authorized to request an absentee ballot on behalf of another. The new form went into effect last week, along with changes in the Iowa voter registration form.
