Official Update on Referendum Vote:
The Referendum Vote results are in, a total of 601 votes were casted. A total of 797 votes were needed, which is 30% of the votes, in order for the votes to be tallied. Since the number of votes did not meet the 30%, the vote dies and therefore the proposed economic project in Mountain Home will continue.
What’s next? The Election Board will certify the ballots and the Fort Hall Business Council will ratify the vote at their next formal meeting.
We thank all the voters who showed up at the polls these past three days to cast your vote.
