Pottawattamie County Elections Launches New Website

COUNCIL BLUFFS (March 4, 2019) -- Pottawattamie County Elections announced today the launch of its modern and user friendly website, https://pottcoelections.org .  The completely new website features a streamlined and simplified design that is now optimized for viewing on mobile devices.

The site offers a host of information and tools for both voters and candidates to quickly and easily find the election information they seek.  Voters can effortlessly access election results, gain information on how to vote, view sample ballots, search our elected officials directory, among many other features.  The site is developed and supported by Neapolitan Labs of Des Moines, IA.

The website will also be the new home for Election Night Results, displaying returns right on the homepage with the ability to feature the most important and interesting local races for the public to easily access.

“We are really pleased with how the website turned out and hope the public will take advantage of all it has to offer” said Melvyn Houser, County Auditor and Election Commissioner.  “We encourage voters to use it and send us any feedback they may have.  We are always looking for ways to improve.”

Voters are encouraged to routinely visit the new site and make a habit of viewing the page before going to vote for the most up to date election information.
