We will have a full report on the absentee ballot drop box tonight at KWWL News at Ten on channel 7.
BLACK HAWK COUNTY, Iowa. (KWWL) - Black Hawk County has installed an absentee ballot drop box outside the public entrance to the Black Hawk County Courthouse.
The box is securely bolted to the sidewalk and is double-locked. It is also under 24-hour security camera surveillance.
Beginning October 5, absentee ballots will be mailed to voters who request them.
Voters may return the postage-paid ballots by mail, by personal delivery to the Election Office or the drop box at the courthouse, or via a third party.
If a voter designates someone to deliver or mail the ballot for them, they may ask the person for a receipt.
Voters may also vote in person at the Election Office, 316. E. 5th St. in Waterloo starting October 5.
After October 5, the drop box will be emptied a minimum of three times a day by Election Office staff.
Voters may also use the drop box to drop off absentee ballot request forms. The box is available for that use immediately.
