2019 Mayoral Run-Off Election

December 3, 2019

Boise City Code provides for a run-off election if no mayoral candidate receives the majority of the vote (i.e., 50% + 1). Because no single mayoral candidate garnered a majority of the votes cast in the general election held on November 5, 2019, a run-off election shall occur in accordance with Boise City Code ("B.C.C.") §1-9-3 and Idaho Code ("I.C.") §50-612.

Mayoral candidates, David Bieter and Lauren McLean, are the two candidates with the highest numbers of votes cast in the general election for the Office of Boise City Mayor, and thus qualify to be in a run-off election. See I.C. § 50-612 and B.C.C. §1-9-3(8).

The run-off election, which must occur within thirty (30) days of the general election, shall be held on Tuesday, December 3, 2019. See I.C. §50-612. The City will treat this run-off election as a new and separate election from the November 5, 2019 general election.
