Election officials in Iowa are preparing for combined school board and city elections in the fall.

Board of education elections used to be held in September. But in 2017, Iowa lawmakers passed a law to hold them in November on the same day as city elections.

So this month, Clinton County mailed new voter registration cards to voters so they'll know where to cast their ballots.

WhereUVote App

As early voting opens Monday in Iowa, voters in several counties can get information using their smart phones. Both Scott and Clinton counties are offering an app called WhereUVote. 

With the Iowa primary less than three weeks away, there's help for residents of Clinton County who may not remember where to cast their ballots. The county is once again offering a free app called "WhereUVote."

Residents of Clinton will be asked to go to the polls again next month to decide the race for mayor. In Tuesday's municipal election, incumbent mayor Mark Vulich received the most votes in the three-person race, but not a majority.

Clinton County Auditor, Eric van Lancker, says city ordinances require a candidate to receive at least 50 per cent, plus one, of the votes cast in order to win. 

Vulich received 13-hundred votes, or 41 per cent, while Jennifer Graf finished second with 36 per cent.
