Word from Boise City Hall: Former Fire Captain Paul Fortin and former Ada Sheriff Myron Gilbert have dropped out of the race.
Gilbert filed before Judy Peavey-Derr announced her mayor candidacy at the last minute. She is a current member of the Greater Boise Auditorium District board and formerly served on the Ada Highway District and Ada County Board of Commissioners.
Fortin had opposed incumbent city councilor Elaine Clegg, but changed his mind after weighing the odds of beating an incumbent. Four years ago he challenged Maryanne Jordan.
Election day is November 3. Early voting starts in a month–October 19. Ada Elections will have early voting at 400 N. Benjamin as usual and hope to also offer early voting at Meridian City Hall and at Indigent Services east of the Courthouse on Front Street.
Ballots for all elections within the county will be available at each location. Of course only registered voters of the appropriate district or city will be allowed to vote.
