Due to Tuesday’s severe winter weather, Iowa Secretary of State Paul D. Pate has declared the polls will open at noon for the city of Dallas Center special election, weather permitting.
The special election was called to fill a vacancy on the dallas Center City Council. Michael Kidd was elected mayor of Dallas Center November, opening a vacancy on the city council. The council appointed Curtis Pion to fill the vacancy, but Julie Becker collected the 10 signatures needed to force a special election.
The First Presbyterian Church at 1203 13th St. in Dallas Center is the polling place. The original 7 a.m. opening was changed to noon by Pate. The polls will close at 8 p.m.
Weather conditions will be monitored throughout the day for a possible election postponement, according to the Dallas County Auditor’s office.
