Local election day in Iowa

Story County's Election Commissioner says you probably won't see long lines at city election polling places today. County Auditor Lucy Martin says local elections generate an average 15 percent voter turnout.  She says contested races for Ames mayor and a city council seat could prompt more voters to go to the polls. She also says today is the last chance for voters and poll workers to practice using procedures and equipment with iowa's new Voter ID law. Martin says the new law will be in effect for a proposed school bond issue vote early next year. Polls are open until 8:00 p.m.
