In Their Own Words: Do you plan on voting in the Iowa City City Council elections?


City elections are Nov. 7. In Iowa City, five candidates will compete for three four-year terms on the City Council, three hopefuls for two at-large seats and two for the District B seat. We asked people on campus, “Do you know anything about the City Council candidates, and do you plan on voting?”

Ava Stipanovich

UI sophomore

“No, I’m not voting in the election because I’m not informed about it.”

Chris Leanos

UI sophomore

“I’m not voting because I haven’t really learned anything about it or been active in it. So I don’t feel like I should vote.”

Morgan Brown

UI sophomore

“I don’t really know anything about it, because I’ve been so busy with classes. I don’t know, I haven’t seen any posters or anything.”

Tiffany Bui

UI sophomore

“No, I’m not. I haven’t heard much about it, and I want to know what my vote would be counted for, so I’m just not going to do it.”
