Residents can vote on Iowa license plate designs

DES MOINES (AP) — After nearly 20 years, Iowa’s standard license plate will get a new design, and residents can vote on which of three options they like best.

Gov. Kim Reynolds unveiled three potential designs Thursday at the state fair. Department of Transportation graphic artists created the new designs, which are now up for a vote by fairgoers and others online.
All three options feature a bold color strip across the top, with “Iowa” written in capital letters. Two designs show rural scenes and one features a version of the eagle from the state flag.

When a new design is selected, it will be available sometime in 2018, replacing the blue and white design that has been in use since 1998.
