Most polls will open at 7:00 this morning for municipal elections across Iowa.  Two of the most-talked about races in eastern Iowa are the mayoral races in Cedar Falls and Waterloo. Election officials in both cities are anticipating a large number of voters.

In Cedar Falls, voters have three candidates to choose from. Incumbent Mayor Jon Crews, Jim Brown and Dave Halterman.  Roundabouts in Cedar Falls have been a hot-button issue throughout the mayoral campaign.

In Waterloo, current Mayor Buck Clark is not running for re-election.  There are five candidates in this race for mayor.  Frank Magsamen, Leah Morrison, Quentin Hart, Tim Hurley, Wayne Nathem are all vying for your vote.  One issue talked about frequently during their campaign is the appointment of a City Manager.  

There are three candidates vying for the Mayoral job in Marion. Current mayor Snooks Bouska is not seeking re-election.  Council members Joe Spinks and Nicolas Abou Assaly and former Mayor John Nieland are on the ballot. 

Cedar Rapids residents will vote on whether to approve a new library tax levy of 27 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value. If approved, nearly $1.6 million would be raised to go to operation costs at the library.  For a $150,000 home, a homeowner would pay an additional $23 a year.

All polling locations will close at 8:00pm tonight. Go to http://sos.iowa.gov/elections/auditors/AuditorsList.html to find polling location information from your county auditor.
