Treasurer seal replaces Auditor’s signature on ballots

Due to the insistence of a state senator from Scott County, all future ballots in Iowa will be printed with a county seal in the upper right hand corner of the ballot instead of your county auditor’s signature. Supposedly, the senator’s reasoning is that county auditors received an unfair advantage from having their signature on the ballot when they were running for re-election. Evidently, the senator forgot to check the Code of Iowa before proposing the legislation because the Code requires county seals to contain the word TREASURER.

So the next time you go to vote, check the upper right hand corner for the county seal containing the word Treasurer to confirm you received an official ballot.  Joel D. Miller – Linn County Auditor & Commissioner of Elections
