Pottawattamie County Auditor Marilyn Jo Drake has overseen many an election, but something happened this year that caught her attention.

It also created anger among some voters.

Drake said a group she couldn’t identify used a legal procedure called “caging,”

“We had people come to the counter very unhappy,” she said. “Some group in town sent out material by mail to certain houses and if those occupants didn’t return that material to the group, the group would then consider that house as vacant.”
