Voters in western Iowa will head to polls again in December. Polling sites will be open on December 4th for a special Iowa Western Community College Bond Election. The Public Measure asks:  “Shall the Iowa Western Community College (Merged Area XIII) in the Counties of Adair, Adams, Audubon, Cass, Crawford, Fremont, Harrison, Mills, Monona, Montgomery, Page, Pottawattamie and Shelby, be authorized to remodel, erect and equip buildings at the main campus and other enrollment locations, contract indebtedness therefor, and issue its school bonds in an amount not exceeding $22,500,000 for that purpose?”

In order to keep the costs of conducting the election down, the minimum number of voting places will be opened for this election. Any voter who will not be going to the designated voting place on election day may request an absentee ballot. Absentee ballots should be requested as soon as a person decides to vote using this process.
