VOTER LISTS

The Johnson County Auditor's Office can produce electronic voter lists for Johnson County or for any state legislative or school district which includes part of Johnson County. Congressional district and statewide lists may be ordered from the Secretary of State.

(NOTE: Voter data is made available for political purposes only. Use of voter registration information for commercial purposes, such as debt collection or sales, or for any purpose other than those allowed by law is a serious misdemeanor. (Code of Iowa, Section 48A.39) Persons purchasing lists must specify their political purpose (for example, the name of a campaign or political organization). All list requests are kept on public file.)

Costs: Voter list prices are standardized statewide. There is a minimum $10.00 charge for any voter list. Any list with less than 20,000 records will be the $10.00 minimum. For larger lists, the rate is $1.00 per 2,000 records. The voter file is constantly being updated, and actual costs are calculated at the time the list is prepared. A list of all active registered voters in the county usually costs between $45 and $50.

Payment: Cash or check made payable to Johnson County Auditor's Office is due at the time the list is requested (sorry, we do not accept credit cards at this time).

For more information or for specific requests, please contact Karl Arndt or Shaun Kinney at our office.
