When the legislature consolidated the election process in Idaho to just two dates–May and November–some small agencies like The Greater Boise Auditorium District got caught in limbo because their election previously was held in February.
The question arose about when to “transition” to the new system. The law calls for a November election for the G-Bad Boys, raising the question about filling the vacancies between February and November. As it now sits, the plan is for a “grace period” leaving the incumbents in office–unelected–about 9 months past their term of office. It could be shortened to a one-time extra period of about 90 days.
