This morning, Roxanna Moritz, President of the Iowa State Association of County Auditors, issued a press release reminding county auditors that beginning at 12:01am today, we have 46 hours to count the absentee ballots we had as of this morning, i.e., 924,533 absentee ballots
Translation: Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate is going to suspend the counting of absentee ballots at 10pm on Election Night. This means that any of those 924,533 absentee ballots NOT counted by 10pm will NOT be counted.
In Linn County, we started the process of counting the absentee ballots included in the 924,533 total at 7am. We will not stop until 100% are counted. Posted by Joel D. Miller – Linn County Auditor & Commissioner of Elections
