JOHNSON COUNTY (KWWL) -
Several polling places for Tuesday's school board elections will be in schools.
Johnson County uses more than 20 schools as polling places for different elections, more than any other county in the state.
Several counties have looked at moving polls out of schools. Johnson County has changed some, but the auditor has decided to continue to use others.
"We heard a lot of mixed reaction at the Johnson County Fair," said Travis Weipert, Johnson County Auditor. "We had a lot of people tell us ... that they weren't happy that we were moving out of the schools, because they feel it's a great civic lesson to the kids."
Several Eastern Iowa counties will be using vote centers in the school board election.
