Government and politics

Similar to other Idaho counties, an elected three-member county commission heads the county government. Other elected officials include clerk, treasurer, sheriff, assessor, coroner, and prosecutor.[6]

Like other eastern Idaho counties, Bannock County has a significant Mormon population which strongly tends to vote Republican. However, a substantial trade union presence in the county - as well as the Idaho State University community - often gives Democrats an overall advantage, especially in local races. Bannock County routinely elects more Democrats than Republicans to county-level offices.

The last Democratic candidate for President to win the county was Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964,[7] although subsequent Republican victories have been by smaller margins than those in neighboring counties.

At the state level Bannock County is located in Legislative Districts 29 and 30.[8] Democrats currently control five of these six seats in the Idaho Legislature.[9]
