In addition, the Freeborn County Auditor-Treasurer’s office will be open Saturday, Oct. 30, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., for those who will be absent from their precinct because of illness or disability, religious discipline or observance of religious holiday or service as an election judge in another precinct.

Because of the Auditor-Treasurer’s Office being a polling place location, there should be no campaigning within 100 feet of the Government Center Building according to HF 3108, Laws 2010, Chapter 201. Campaigning means that campaign buttons, shirts, signs, bumper stickers, etc., cannot be visible within 100 feet of the building for any candidate or question, state, federal or local. No campaign matter can be visible while voting absentee.
