MASON CITY | The Cerro Gordo County election system will be publicly tested beginning at 9 a.m. Monday, Aug. 21 in the Election Annex at 121 Third Street N.W.
In the 2017 regular school election, voters will vote on paper ballots that will be counted with optical-scan machines. A ballot-marking machine will be available in each precinct for any voter who needs assistance in marking the ballot.
Iowa law requires a test of the election system prior to each election in which it is used. The test is open to the public.
Additional election and voter registration information can be at the Cerro Gordo County website, co.cerro-gordo.ia.us.
