Voter Registration

The Iowa Secretary of State’s office is encouraging Iowans to vote by mail in the June 2 primary to reduce the risk of spread of COVID-19.  The Iowa Secretary of State’s office will be mailing absentee ballot request forms to every active registered voter in the state ahead of the June 2 primary. The forms will be sent in mid-to-late April and will include prepaid postage for return mailing to county auditors. 

If you are an eligible Iowa resident and have not registered to vote or need to change or update your current voter registration, the Iowa Secretary of State recommends that you do so now to ensure the absentee ballot request form goes to the correct address.

Mercy College is proud of Iowa’s historical role in the selection of the President of the United States as the host of the nation’s first caucus every four years. As citizens, we want to encourage you to register to vote here and then to exercise that responsibility and let your voice be heard in municipal, school, county, state, and national elections.

One of the most important lessons you’ll learn throughout your healthcare education is the role you’ll play as an advocate for your patients.

Voter registration cards are also available at the receptionist desk in the Sullivan Center.
