Voting Booths

McIntire, IA had two questions on the ballot and no one showed up to vote on them.

80 miles north of The Cedar Valley is the town of McIntire, Iowa.  McIntire is a town of 120 people.  70 of them are registered voters.  Exactly zero of them came to vote on the ballot on Tuesday, August 1st.

There were two questions on the ballot: Should the term of the mayor be extended to four years from the original two, and should the terms of council members go from two years to four as well.

Mitchell County deputy auditor, Barbara Baldwin, acknowledged that the poll workers didn’t even vote since none of them live in the town of McIntire.  She has seen low turnouts in her 28 years in the county but, “This is definitely a first.”
