Thousands Have Already Voted in Lee County

Nov 3, 2008

Fort Madison, IA – Thousands of Lee County residents have already cast their ballots for the Presidential election.

Elections Coordinator Denise Fraise says the Lee County Auditor's Office has processed more than 7,100 ballots, both absentee and in-person, since early voting began in late September.

She says that while roughly 8,000 votes were cast early four years ago, foot traffic is way up this year.

Fraise says more than 24-thousand people are registered to vote in Lee County.

You can still register to vote on election day, as long as you have the proper identification: Drivers License with proper address or Photo ID with utility bill proving address.

Fraise says there have been no problems with the county's new voting machines.
