Mail-in registrations post marked on or before August 26th, but received after August 28th, will also be accepted for pre-registration. The school election will be held on Tuesday, September 8, 2015.
After Friday, those interested in voting, but who are not pre-registered, may register to vote at the polls on Election Day or at the Auditor’s Office and vote an absentee ballot prior to Election Day. Those registering in this manner are required to provide proof of their identity through a photo identity card, such as a valid driver’s license, and proof of their residency if the identity card does not list a current address. Details for Election Day registration are available on the Auditor’s webpage, http://www.scottcountyiowa.com/auditor/.
Polling hours will vary by school districts. For the Davenport and North Scott School Districts polls will be open from12:00 noon to 8:00 p.m. Because there are no contested races or ballot measures voting hours were shortened in these two districts to reduce election costs.

Bettendorf School District voters may cast ballots at either St. John Vianney Church, 4097 18th Street, Bettendorf or Waterfront Convention Center, 2021 State Street, Bettendorf.
Pleasant Valley School District voters who reside in director districts three, four, five and six may cast ballots at the Pleasant Valley Schools Administration Building, 525 Belmont Road, Bettendorf. Because there are contested races vote centers are used in this election to reduce election costs.
