The vote totals for the June 5 primary in Lee County are now official. The list of candidates receiving votes includes Democratic Congressman Dave Loebsack and Republican Governor Kim Reynolds as well as Daffy Duck, Mickey Mouse, and someone named Jim.

A potential legislative candidate in southeast Iowa must find another way to get on the November ballot.

Republican Jim Steffen of Argyle announced in late May his intention to run a write-in campaign in Iowa’s 83rd House District.

Lee County Election Coordinator Denise Fraise says Steffen received 107 votes.

She says that would normally be enough votes to move him on to the general election, but the redistricting process has changed that.
