Special Election News

Governor Kim Reynolds has called two special elections to fill vacancies in the Iowa House of Representatives.  House District 39, which includes the northside of Ankeny, Alleman, and Douglas Township, had been represented by Rep. John Landon until his death in August.  Soon after, Rep. Wes Breckenridge (D-Newton) announced he would step down from his seat in order to focus more on his job as the Deputy Director of the Iowa Law Enforcement Academy.  

  • Voters in Ankeny elected Republican Rep. Mike Bousselot, who had previously served as Governor Branstad's Chief of Staff and Governor Reynolds' Department of Management Director.  He is both a CPA and lawyer, and will represent Ankeny's House District 39 in the 2022 legislative session.  

  • Voters in Jasper County (including Newton) will go to the polls on Tuesday, October 12 (7 a.m. to 8 p.m.) to vote for a new State Representative in House District 29.  You can find more information about absentee voting and registration dates for this race here. The candidates are:
