John Deeth Blog: Sales tax post mortem

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

In the midst of recession, right after income tax season, and in the
wake of controversial city council actions (buh-bye Mike Lombardo),
the most anti-sales tax city in the state recognized the flood relief
need and battled to a de facto tie: a six vote win in Iowa City and a
seven vote loss in Coralville. Expect those results to hold. The
chance that outstanding absentee ballots will flip things is slim in
Iowa City and only theoretical in Coralville and Shueyville. Only
three came in on Wednesday (all Iowa City), and those numbers diminish
day by day. Almost all of the unreturned ballots were sent out under
the The Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act.
