Scott County Auditor to Open
Four Satellite Voting Locations on Monday, October 22nd:

Vote in-person at Bettendorf Library,

Fairmount and Eastern Branch Libraries in Davenport and

Scott County Library in Eldridge.

DAVENPORT – Scott County Auditor Roxanna Moritz announced that starting Monday, October 22, 2012, in-person early voting will be available at several public library locations for the November 6, 2012 General Election. These locations will be open Monday through Saturday for the next two weeks. Times will vary depending on the hours of operation for each location. Each site will have all ballot styles available for Scott County voters.

"We provide early voting opportunities for those who have decided on how they intend to vote," Auditor Roxanna Moritz said. "This helps relieve waiting in long lines for voters and stress on our poll workers on Election Day. In addition, it provides increased convenience to voters who may be hard pressed to vote on Election Day."

"We selected the public libraries as voting sites due to their neutral, non-partisan standing in the eyes of most voters," Moritz added. "In the past we have seen significant numbers of voters utilize this opportunity to vote."

During the 2008 General Election 15,607 people voted early in-person at satellite locations in Scott County. An additional 4,027 voted early in-person at the Auditor's Office. Also, in 2008 16,792 people voted early by mail.

The specific sites include the Bettendorf Public Library, the Eastern Avenue Branch Library and the Fairmount Street Branch Libraries in Davenport and the Scott County Library in Eldridge.
