Presidential candidate Mitt Romney is set to visit Ames on Friday, Oct. 26.

Romney will speak at Kinzler Construction Services, which is where he spoke when he visited Ames in December 2011.

Kinzler Construction is located at 2335 230th St. If you are using a GPS to locate the event, however, the address you will need to use is 2335 West Lincoln St.

Doors to the event will open at 9:30 a.m., and it is expected to begin between 11:30 a.m. and noon.

Barack Obama and Romney have made multiple visits to the state of Iowa, a swing state that has six electoral votes up for grabs in the Nov. 6 election.

According to a flyer released from the Romney campaign, those planning to attend the event are being asked to bring as few personal items as possible and should be prepared for “airport-like security.”

Cameras will be allowed at the event, but no bags, liquids, sharp objects, signs or umbrellas will be permitted.

Tickets for the event can be obtained at the Ames Victory Office at 711 East Lincoln Way from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday.
