And the race is on.
Filing opened Monday, March 3, for candidates seeking open political offices in Idaho. Prospective candidates have just more than a week to file petitions by the Friday, March 14, deadline.
Filings for Idaho County offices as of Monday: James Zehner of Grangeville filed for re-election as county assessor, Abbie Hudson of Grangeville for county treasurer, and Cody Funke of Cottonwood for county coroner. All are Republicans.
This election year in Idaho County, six positions are open: commission districts 1 and 2 (held, respectively by Skip Brandt of Kooskia and James Rockwell of Grangeville), county clerk (held by Kathy Ackerman of Grangeville), assessor (held by Zehner), coroner (held by Steve Frei of Grangeville), and treasurer (held by Deanna Hall of Grangeville). All are Republicans.
March 14 is also the deadline for voters to not only be registered but also have stated a political affiliation with one of Idaho’s four recognized political parties – Constitution, Democrat, Libertarian, Republican – or have themselves designated as “unaffiliated” or no party preference.
Registered electors who are currently affiliated with a recognized political party and wish to change affiliation may complete a party affiliation form prior to March 14; after this date voters may not change affiliation until after the May 20 primary election.
