Voters in Iowa City have once again approved an ordinance to keep the age requirement to get into a bar at 21-years-old.

Sixty-six percent of voters cast their ballots in favor of the 21 ordinance. That means that 19 and 20-year-olds will have to leave the bar at 10:00 each night.

Two bar employees filed the petition to get this issue on the ballot. They argued the 21 ordinance hurt downtown Iowa City’s economy.
