Five Republicans and one Democrat have flocked to the race to fill Idaho’s District 11 House B seat left open by Rep. Christy Perry, who vacated the position to join the packed race for Idaho’s 1st Congressional District.

BOISE — An open seat in Congress, as current Rep. Raúl Labrador steps down to run for governor, has drawn a whopping 10 candidates to the primary election ballot — and poses a big challenge for Idaho voters to sort through as they prepare to make their picks on May 15.

Kuna voters will see several contested races on the primary ballot May 15. Voters registered as Democrat or Republican can vote within their party in this primary election. Candidates with the most votes in each party will appear on the November ballot. 

Kuna and Melba legislators have challengers on the ballot this upcoming election, and theirs are not the only offices Kuna and Melba voters will be asked to vote on in the May 15 primary.
