CERRO GORDO CO., Iowa – With the election only one week away, 1,336 absentee ballots requested in the county have not been returned, officials say.

Any absentee ballot that is physically received in the county auditor’s office by 9 p.m. on election night will be counted. A voter may personally deliver or mail a voted ballot or designate another person to do it.

An absentee ballot received back in the county auditor’s office between Election Day and noon on Monday, Nov. 14, must either bear a legible postmark dated prior to Election Day or must have been electronically tracked in the U.S. Postal Service system before Election Day.

It is each voter’s responsibility to deliver or mail the voted ballot early enough to be counted.
