Linn County voters recently decided to reduce the size of the Board of Supervisors from five members to three. The August 1 election will decide how those Supervisors will be elected.
There will be three plans on the ballot:
Plan 1: Supervisors would be elected at-large.
Plan 2: Supervisors would be elected at-large, but with a twist. There would be three districts, and each supervisor would have to live in a different district. If you were running, for example, and lived in the 1st District, you could only run for the 1st District seat, but you would still have to run county-wide.
Plan 3: Supervisors would be elected by district.
