    MUSCATINE, Iowa–As the June 2 primary election draws near, voters should take note of several changes put in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Both Iowa Secretary Sate Paul Pate and Muscatine County Auditor Leslie Soule encourage people to vote absentee if possible. All registered voters across the state received an application for an absentee ballot. In order to receive an absentee ballot, voters must have mailed their applications back by May 22. For those who requested absentee ballots, they must mail in the ballots by June 2 for them to count.

    For those voting in person, the auditor’s office has decreased the number of polling sites to reduce the number of polling officials needed and to make them easier to sanitize. These combined polling locations, open from 7 a. m. to 9 p. m., include the following:

    • Muscatine Community School District Administration Building, 2900 Mulberry Avenue, Muscatine: Muscatine First, Second, Third, and Fourth Precincts (left side of room) and Muscatine Fifth, Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth Precincts (right side of room).
    • Muscatine Community College McAvoy Center, 1403 Park Avenue, Muscatine: Muscatine Ninth and Tenth Precincts, Bloomington, and Sweetland.
    • Fruitland Community Center, 104 Sand Run Road, Fruitland: Fruitland Precincts One and Two, Lake and 76, and Cedar.
    • West Liberty Community Center, 1204 North Calhoun Street, West Liberty: West Liberty One and Two, Goshen/Atalissa, Orono/Conesville, Pike/Nichols, and Wapsi.
    • Wilton Community Center, 1215 Cypress St. Wilton: Wilton City, Wilton/Moscow/Durant, and Fulton/Montpelier/Stockton/Blue Grass)

    To safeguard voters, election officials will wear masks and wipe down polling stations often. They will also provide each voter with his or her own pen, which they may keep.
