The upcoming City Election will be held November 2, 2021, with seats being filled on January 12, 2022. The following seats are up for election:
Mayor: Currently held by Lynn Mogensen
Council Position #2: Currently held by Elmer Mattila
Council Position #4: Currently held by Rick Shaffer
Council Position #6: Currently held by Dean Cooper
Please note that in order to run for office, one must be a “Qualified Elector.” A Qualified Elector is defined as follows: Any person who is at least eighteen (18) years of age, is a United States citizen and who has resided in the city at least thirty (30) days preceding the election at which he desires to vote (denoted as a primary residence) and who is registered within the time period provided by law (please remember your address on the voter registration card must match the address on the Candidate’s Declaration). ** A person who owns property within the City, but resides outside of the city limits is not allowed to vote in a city election nor run for city office.
The candidate filing packet, write-in declaration of intent, withdrawal forms, candidate and write-in certification forms are all available on a state website, but still filed with the City Clerk. Rather than each city developing their own candidate filing forms and other documents, this year we will be using the forms developed by the Secretary of State’s office in consultation with Association of Idaho Cities so there is greater consistency around the state. Those forms can be found at https://voteidaho.gov/city-resources/
