Please note that under new legislation the City Clerk is no longer responsible for overseeing campaign finance reporting of candidates who raise or spend $500.00 or more during this election.  Candidates will use the portal on the Secretary of State's website to report all campaign finance reports.

*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
