Davenport Municipal Primary Today


It's been a turbulent year within the City of Davenport.

The city has had its fair share of controversy with the development of a land-based casino, as well as budget cuts to police and city services.

Although the municipal primary election usually yields low voter turn out, this is the community's opportunity to step in.

On Tuesday, October 8, 2013, the polls open at 7:00 a.m. and Davenport City Council seats are on the ballot.

Aldermen at Large and Third Ward seats are the only positions voters can decide on this year.

There are three running for Third Ward, including current seat holder Bill Boom as well as challengers, Andrew King and Carlton Wills.

For Alderman at Large, there are a total of five people running, including the two current council members Jason Gordon and Gene Meeker.

Challenging the incumbents are Cheryl Draeger, Dale Gilmour and Kevin Perkins.

In all other wards, there are no challengers for the incumbents.

Scott County Auditor, Roxanne Moritz says voting in this Municipal Primary is just like voting in the general election.

"The primary is just the same as a general election, what that means is they can come in, do same day registration. So if you are not already registered to vote they have the opportunity to show up at the polls. Go ahead and bring proper identification which is just a picture ID along with something that verifies where they live."

Moritz says proof of residence could be a bank statement, a phone statement, utility bill a lease agreement or similar documents. This will allow you to register to vote.

The polls open at 7:00 a.m. and close at 8:00 p.m.
