Tri-State voters head to the polls

(WGEM) — It’s Election Day in Missouri and Iowa.

Polls are open in Missouri from 6 a.m. until 7 p.m. and in Iowa from 12 p.m. until 8 p.m.

In the Missouri Special Election, voters will decide the future of the Monroe City sewage system. The city has a ballot issue to fund a new $10 million wastewater plant through bonds.

Other key elections are taking place in Iowa’s City and School Election where Fort Madison residents will elect a new mayor.

Brad Randolph has served three terms as Fort Madison Mayor and is not running for reelection. The three mayoral candidates are Third Ward Councilman Matt Mohrfeld, local butcher Joseph Helmick, and Rodney Hoskins.

Voters should be aware that there is another name on the ballot for Fort Madison Mayor, but the Lee County Auditor’s Office says Jason Eaves dropped out after they had already printed the ballots.

Also on Tuesday’s Iowa ballots, school districts in both Fort Madison and Donnelson will be asking voters to approve how they can use tax money that has already been collected.

Some Lee County voters will also elect city council and school board members.
