Should the Mayor run for Governor?


On 2/18, my office partnered with The Gazette on Pints & Politics at the CSPS.  We setup a voter education table and conducted a survey of the attendees using the County’s new voting machines.  We received many positive compliments on our new ExpressVote ballot marking touch screen devices which meet Iowa and Federal ADA standards.

Ninety attendees participated in the survey.  The questions were provided by The Gazette and the results were tabulated by my staff.  Here are the questions and results:
