New help is available for residents of Scott County who want to be prepared for next month's primary election. Now available on the auditor's office website is an "interactive sample ballot."

Elections supervisor, Richard Bauer, says all you have to do is plug in your name and birth date, and the software will find your correct ballot for June 7th. Voters can research their choices ahead of time, and then bring a list of their preferences to the polls.

The software was developed by a company called Democracy Live.

Bauer says voters can check both republican and democratic ballots, and then decide which party they'll declare for on election day.

Residents of Scott County will be the first in Iowa to have access to an interactive sample ballot.
