Six county positions are up for election in Idaho’s May primary this year. The filing period for the election is from March 3-14.

Residents with questions about filing for elected positions in the county can contact Camille Larsen at the county clerk’s office. She said she has an election-filing packet with several forms she can give out to potential candidates.

Posts open in the upcoming primary are for Franklin County Commission District 1 and 2. District 1 is a four-year position, while District 2 is for two years. Other open positions are for assessor, clerk, treasurer and coroner.

County Commissioner Boyd Burbank represents District 1 and said he plans to file for re-election. Scott Workman represents District 2 and said he also plans to file for re-election.

Assessor, Jase Cundick; clerk, Shauna Geddes; and treasurer, Jeanette Mckay, all said they plan to run again. Long-time coroner, Douglas Webb, said he will not seek re-election. Webb has been coroner since 1968.

And District 32 incumbent Sen. John Tippets, of Bennington; and Representatives Tom Loertcher, Idaho Falls; and Marc Gibbs, Grace; all indicated they will seek re-election. All are Republicans.

District 32 includes Franklin, Oneida, Bear Lake, Caribou and Teton counties and a part of Bonneville County.

New residents of the county can pre-register now at the clerk’s office in the courthouse through April 25. They must bring with them an Idaho driver’s license. If a person has no driver’s license, they must provide a picture identification and some document like a utility bill to verify residence.

New residents can also register at the polls on election day. If residents have voted in a county election within the last four years they are automatically registered.

Absentee balloting begins on April 4 and continues through May 16 at 5 p.m.

Those with questions about registration can contact anyone at the clerk’s office.
