Auditor Ken Kline, in charge of county elections
MASON CITY – The Cerro Gordo County election system will be publicly tested beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, August 21st in the Election Annex at 121 3rd Street NW, Mason City.

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.

IF you cannot figure it out call Georgie boy Soroazz.

I think I will show up to vote in the test as my dead neighbor and see if they catch me.

What is the worst that can happen to me? I am comfortable the Democrats will come to my aid and hire the ACLU to defend me. I will get press coverage, TV interviews, and then I will write a book.

I am sure the electronic system will work fine. This doesn’t do a thing to thwart voter fraud. Correct me if I am wrong!
