PRIMGHAR, Iowa (KTIV) -- Election day is less than one month away, which means early voting has begun in the state of Iowa.
If you plan on voting early in O'Brien County, there are a few things county officials want you to remember.
The first thing officials say to consider is the significant uptick in early voters.
They say the sooner you can cast your early ballot, the better.
"Yesterday, as you know, was the first day for in-person voting and we did run about 32 to 33 people through in just one day, which is pretty high considering past years," said O'Brien County Auditor Barb Rohwer.
Once you make the decision, officials say to come by the courthouse prepared with identification and, of course, a face covering.
"We have a table when they first come in that they can get their application form, get that filled out, we ask that they have their ID on that clipboard when they're ready to come in and hand off their form so it can be processed, then they get their ballot," said Rohwer.
For those who want to vote early, but are still concerned about safety, officials say they will accommodate.
"If we have some folks that don't feel comfortable coming into the building, they can give us a call, we can get the paperwork all ready for them, we can come out to the car and curbside vote. If they've got mobility issues or just don't feel comfortable," said Rohwer.
For all Iowa citizens, the last day to register to vote is October 24th.
