There were three items on the back page of the ballot for this years mid-term election. Voters chose not to retain the three judges who struck down the constitutionality of the one man-one woman marriage law, Iowa voters also chose not to have a constitutional convention something that is voted on once every ten years–which would have gave the legislature the opportunity to review and rewrite all or a portion of a document. Voters did vote yes on the “Iowa Land and Water legacy” amendment being added to the states constitution, which creates a trust fund dedicated to protecting and enhancing Iowa’s natural resources. Marion County followed Iowa’s lead on all three issues.
