Every county in Iowa must review its precinct boundaries after a federal decennial census, according to Iowa law.
The ordinance adopted by the Decatur County Supervisors reduces the number of precincts in Decatur County from seven to four. Precinct 1 will vote at Van Wert Community Center, Precinct 2 will vote at Leon Community Center, Precinct 3 will vote at Lamoni Community Center and Precinct 4 will vote at Davis City Community Center.
It is expected that these changes in the precincts will address some critical issues:
The adopted ordinance, map and other required documentation are currently under review with the Iowa Secretary of State and upon approval, will be effective January 15, 2022. Following approval, updated voter information postcards will be mailed to all Decatur County voters. The first scheduled election with the new precincts is the June 7, 2022 Primary Election.
