Resolution Puts Gambling Reauthorization Vote on November 2021 Ballot

Gambling table

The Linn County Board of Supervisors has approved a resolution (PDF) that will allow Linn County voters to decide on Nov. 2, 2021, whether to reauthorize gambling games in Linn County. Per state statute, this measure must be voted on and approved twice, with an eight-year separation between the two votes, to allow gambling in Linn County permanently. Linn County voters first approved a gambling referendum in 2013.

The November referendum will be a yes/no vote on whether Linn County residents want to allow gambling facilities in Linn County. The referendum is not for a specific casino or proposed casino. A yes vote means Linn County will allow gambling—it does not mean that a casino will be developed in Linn County. Approval of a specific gambling facility in Linn County has additional requirements, including an application and approval by the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission.
