BLACKFOOT — A great turnout in precincts throughout Bingham County slowed down the vote count Tuesday night.
"There was an enormous turnout," said Bingham County Clerk Sara Staub. "We're pleased with it.
"We're sorry some people had to wait at the polls."
Bingham County Election Director Marlene Jensen said the count delay could be attributed to the two-page ballot, the write-in for county commissioner and the vast amount of people who came out to vote.
