CEMETERY MAINTENANCE DISTRICT LAW
27-111. Election of commissioners. (1) On the first Tuesday following the first Monday in November and every odd-numbered year thereafter, three (3) cemetery maintenance district commissioners shall be elected by the electors of each cemetery district as defined in section 27-104, Idaho Code. For commissioners whose offices expire in 2012 and in any even-numbered year, such commissioners shall remain in office until the next election in an odd-numbered year. The county clerk shall conduct the election in a manner consistent with statutory provisions of chapter 14, title 34, Idaho Code.
(2) For cemetery maintenance districts consisting of less than one hundred fifty (150) registered electors, the cemetery maintenance district commissioners may be elected at large. For all other districts, of the commissioners comprising the board at any one time, not more than one (1) shall be an elector of the same cemetery maintenance commissioners subdistrict. A commissioner shall be an elector of the subdistrict which he represents at the time of his declaration of candidacy and during his term of office. A qualified elector of the cemetery maintenance district shall be eligible to vote for each of the cemetery maintenance district commissioners. At the first election following the formation of a cemetery maintenance district, commissioners from cemetery maintenance subdistricts one (1) and two (2) shall be elected for terms of four (4) years, and the commissioner from cemetery maintenance subdistrict three (3) shall be elected for a term of two (2) years; thereafter the term of office of all commissioners shall be four (4) years. All elections held under this law, shall be held in conformity with the general laws of the state, including chapter 14, title 34, Idaho Code.
(3) In any election for cemetery maintenance district commissioners, if, after the expiration of the date for filing a declaration of intent as a write-in candidate for the office of commissioner, it appears that only one (1) qualified candidate has been nominated for each position to be filled, it shall not be necessary to hold an election, and the board of commissioners shall declare such candidate elected as commissioner, and the secretary shall immediately make and deliver to such person a certificate of election signed by him bearing the seal of the district. The procedure set forth in this subsection shall not apply to any other cemetery maintenance district election.
(4) A cemetery maintenance district created from the consolidation of two (2) or more cemetery maintenance districts as provided in section 27-129, Idaho Code, may operate with five (5) cemetery maintenance commissioners.
