Voting Information

General Election

We want to make sure everyone is knowledgable about the voting process and informed in your decisions.

Any voter wishing to vote in Scott County can do so on the St. Ambrose campus during our special early voting dates, regardless of voting precinct.

If you are a residential student this is an advantage because, depending on your residence hall on election day, you may or may not be voting here on campus. If you are an off-campus student and Scott County resident, this also benefits you because you can vote on campus. So, since you are here for class why not vote at the same time!SAU Campus precinct boundaries (pdf)

Am I able to vote before election day?

Here is a link to the Scott County Auditor's page with information on Satellite Early Voting. The St. Ambrose University Rogalski Center is an early voting satellite location.

See a complete calendar of early voting dates and location from the Scott County Auditor's office here.

How do I register to vote?*

If you are not currently registered to vote in Scott County, you will need to show:

Proof of identity (a valid driver's license, non-driver identification card, U.S. Passport, U.S. Military ID, ID card issued by employer, or Student ID issued by Iowa high school or college) and proof of your current residence.

A. If you are living on campus you'll need to stop by the office of Residence Life (2nd Floor Rogalski Center) to get a copy of your Residence Housing Contract.
B. If you are living off campus you'll need one of the following to prove your residence (if it contains your name and current address): Residential lease, property tax statement, utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, government check, or other government document.

*Please Note: Registration and voting may only occur in one geographic location. Students may vote locally because they reside in Davenport for the majority of the year. Or, students may also choose to register and vote by absentee ballot in the location of their permanent home address.

How do I vote absentee?

If you would prefer to vote in your home county and not here in Scott County, you'll need to contact your home county's election officials and get an absentee ballot.

Many absentee ballots can be found online at your county's election website and can be mailed in if you are registered to vote. You may have to register first if you haven't done so already. Each county and state has different rules and regulations regarding registering to vote.

Get your information early so you are informed. Make your vote count!!!
