Iowa City Group Fails to Get Enough Signatures for Special Election

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- A group has missed a deadline for putting a measure on the ballot that would change how Johnson County supervisors are elected.

   The Committee for Fair Representation failed to submit the 7,600 valid signatures needed to place a measure on a special election on Aug. 6. The group's petition would change the board's makeup from five at-large seats to people representing five geographical districts.

   Roger Anderson, who has helped to organize the effort, says the group will keep collecting signatures with hopes of holding a later election.
