Friday deadline to submit petition of candidacy, change affiliation

Primary election set May 15



Deadline is this Friday, March 9, to submit petitions of candidacy for positions to be decided in the May 15 primary.

Open at the local level are the following Idaho County positions: commission districts 1 and 3 (currently held by Skip Brandt and Denis Duman, respectively), clerk (Kathy Ackerman) assessor (James Zehner), treasurer (Abbie Hudson) and coroner (Cody Funke).

As of Monday, March 5, only incumbents had filed for re-election to these positions.

Sample Ballots, Polling Places

For the Tuesday, March 13 levy elections, review sample ballots, and find your polling places on page 3B.

This Friday is also the deadline for:

• Change party affiliation. Affiliated voters will not be able to change affiliation after this Friday. Unaffiliated voters can declare affiliation right up to election day, May 15. In Idaho, the Republican Primary is closed, requiring voters are affiliated with the GOP, and the Democratic Primary is open, meaning any one can vote.

• Last day to vote in person at the Idaho County Courthouse for March 13 levy elections.
