John Deeth Blog: Voters head to polls for school election

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

With only eight weeks to go before the presidential election, Iowans
are going to the polls today for school board elections. It's the last
time that will happen in a presidential year. Changes in state law
take effect in 2009, and school board elections will be held every
other year in odd-numbered years, rather than every year. As part of
the transition, some districts will have short terms on the ballot.
For example, Clear Creek Amana voters will elect two members to three
year terms and one member to a one year term. In Urbandale, where two
candidates are running for two seats, the candidate with the most
votes gets a three-year term, and the other candidate will get a one
year term.
