Conservation Voters for Idaho’s endorsed mayoral candidate, Council President Lauren McLean, will head into a runoff election against incumbent Mayor David Bieter.
Why a runoff?
Boise city code mandates that a mayoral candidate must earn a majority of the vote (50% plus one) to win. Because no mayoral candidate earned the majority of the vote during the November 5 election, the top two candidates, McLean and Bieter, move into a runoff election. Lauren McLean received 45.7% and Dave Bieter received 30.3%. Voters will head back to the polls on December 3 to cast their vote on who should be the next Boise Mayor. Early and absentee voting will be available for the runoff election.
