SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – The Iowa primary election will take place Tuesday, but due to COVID-19 concerns, only five of the usual 44 polling locations will be open to the public.
Woodbury County Auditor Pat GIll said that despite the closures, Woodbury County already has a great voter turnout due to the high amount of absentee ballots cast.
“We’re actually accounting the absentee ballots today. Obviously, we won’t tabulate them until the polls close tomorrow,” Gill said.

Polling places will be open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. on election day.
