Sales Tax Vote Count Update

Margins Widen By One Each in Sales Tax Votes

The special ballot board met today and looked at additional ballots. Here's what happened:

Iowa City: Six mailed ballots came in (two domestic, four military/overseas), plus one provisional ballot which was counted. Add 4 to yes and 3 to no. Margin now stands at yes by seven.

Coralville: One mailed ballot came in, margin grows to no by eight.

North Liberty: one provisional ballot, counted.

Unincorporated: two provisional ballots rejected. The voters went to the wrong precinct.

Provisional ballots are now done. Mailed ballots can still be added if 1) they were postmarked by Monday the 4th and 2) they get here by Monday the 11th.
