Even after the public backlash over a proposed ticket system, the Iowa State Fair board is still talking about ways to make the fair go cashless.

Now the board is considering prepaid plastic cards similar to credit cards according to emails obtained by the Des Moines Register.

There are no changes planned for this year’s fair which is being held from August 7th through the 17th.
