Voters in Johnson County headed to the polls Tuesday

They are deciding if the eastern Iowa county should build a new justice center. An earlier bond referendum was approved by voters by 56 percent, but that was short of the required 60 percent it needed to become law.

If it is approved by voters, the referendum would expand the county jail’s size and make renovations to the courthouse.
