IOWA CITY, Iowa - Officials at the Johnson County Auditor’s Office are pushing early voting ahead of a forecast snow storm, which could impact the area tomorrow. Two elections are taking place in the county on Tuesday, which include a bond issue in the Clear Creek Amana School District and a special mayoral election in Swisher.

“Iowa law does not allow elections to be postponed or rescheduled due to weather,” Johnson County auditor Travis Weipert said in a statement. “The forecast calls for 3 to 6 inches of snow by tomorrow evening.”

Early voting remains open at the Johnson County administration building until 5:30 p.m. Monday.

If the $48 million bond issue is approved, the Clear Creek Amana school district would add an elementary school while building additions at the middle and high schools. Voters in Swisher are electing a new mayor after the sudden resignation of Mayor Tim Mason. Mason quit abruptly along with the city clerk just days after three new city councilors were elected.
