On June 1, 2017, a petition calling for a special election to select a Supervisor Representation plan for Linn County, Iowa was filed with the Linn County Auditor's Office.
The petition needed 11,710 signatures from Linn County eligible voters. It had 660 pages with a total of 12,826 signatures. The public has five working days to review and file a written objection to the petition.
If no objection is filed, the Linn County Auditor's Office will ask the Board of Supervisors for a special election to be held on August 1, 2017. Voters will be asked to pick one of the following plans:
Plan "one." At large and without district residence requirements for the members.
Plan "two." At large but with equal-population district residence requirements for the members.
Plan "three." From single-member equal-population districts in which the electors of each district shall elect one member who must reside in that district.
