• The Ankeny Board of Education will put forth a bond referendum to voters on February 6.  If approved, the bond would provide $18 million to design and build a new elementary school. The bond requires a 60% super-majority “yes” vote in order to pass. If passed, construction of the school will begin fall 2018 and be completed by August 2020.

    We are providing an absentee ballot request for your convenience.  After filling out the form, please detach and send the form to the county auditor’s office.  (If you cannot download and print this form, paper copies are available at 306 SW School Street.)

    The request form must be received at the auditor’s office before January 26.  The Polk County Election Office cannot mail an absentee ballot less than 11 days before the election.
