Polls will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Nov. 30 in the Pocatello mayoral runoff election between Brian Blad and David Worley.

The special election was scheduled as per city code because no single mayoral candidate in the Nov. 2 general election received at least 50 percent plus one of the votes cast.

Only voters who reside in Pocatello city limits will be eligible to vote. However, voters needn’t have voted in the general election to be eligible to participate in the runoff.

Voters should also know that their vote from the general election won’t carry over; they must vote again in the runoff. Go to to find a map of polling places.

Elections officials see signs that turnout will be high. Over 2,800 people have voted early in the runoff, about 400 ballots shy of the number of early voters during the entire Nov. 2 general election.
