Services During COVID-19

Linn County’s top priority is the health and safety of employees and the public. That is why Linn County offices will reopen July 20 on an appointment-only basis as part of a phased approach to reopening. Linn County will continue to monitor the evolving COVID-19 situation and adjust County operations and safety measures as needed.

Many County services can be conducted online or remotely through email, mail, our drop boxes, or over the phone. To schedule an appointment with Election Services or for questions about remote services, please call 319-892-5300.
