The top two finishers among the four candidates running for judge in District 4 will face off again in a run-off election held on the ballot for the Nov. 4 Idaho general election.
None of the four candidates vying to fill Michael Wetherell's empty seat took more than 50 percent of the vote, triggering the run-off. Rebecca Arnold, who led the primary with 34.3 percent of the vote, and Samuel Hoagland, who took 31.8 percent of the vote, advance to the run-off.
Jonathan Medema, who took 18.8 percent of the vote, and Jeanne Howe, who took 15.1 percent, won't appear on the general election ballot.
