Linn County voters are choosing to stick with their current County Board of Supervisors representation plan.
Yesterday’s special election gave voters three options on how they were represented on the county level. “Plan Three”, which is what the county currently uses, won with 71-percent of the vote.
The plan is single-member equal-population districts, in which electors of each district elect one Supervisor who resides in the district.
Linn County will now have to re-draw the county into three districts, with one Supervisor representing each district.
15-percent of voters chose Plan Two, and 13-percent wanted Plan One.
Only six percent of Linn County voters turned out for the election (or about nine thousand residents).
