Primary Election

Iowa Falls resident Richard Crosser was one of the 305 people who cast ballots at Iowa Falls’ Precinct #2 in 2018's primary election. About 17 percent of the registered voters in Hardin County turned in ballots.

Two years ago, the Iowa Legislature abandoned separate city and school elections, and instead combined them on the same date in November. The move was made in an effort to boost voter participation in school board elections, which historically have had low turnout.

Under the legislation, school and city elections are now to be held on Tuesday after the first Monday in November during odd numbered years. The first elections under the change will be this year – on Nov. 5.
