BLACKFOOT â€” Bingham County commissioners approved changes to precinct boundaries in the county last Thursday. The precinct lines have been adjusted to more closely match the county's school districts, said Election Director Marlene Jensen.
A total of 318 people will be affected by this change.
If an elector's voting precinct has been changed, he/she will be notified by mail prior to Nov. 1, Jensen said.
Commissioners also voted to make Atomic City Bingham County's first mail ballot precinct.
A mail ballot precinct is consistent with absentee voting, Jensen said.
BLACKFOOT â€” Once a month, volunteers with the Mobile Food Pantry distribute food to those in need in the communityâ€”and more volunteers are needed.
The Mobile Food Pantry, sponsored by the Community Dinner Table, Blackfoot Community Pantry and the Idaho Foodbank, takes place the fourth Thursday of each month. The Food Pantry is currently operating at 340 W. Sexton St.
In July and August, the pantry served 160 families. They distribute between 8,000 and 10,000 pounds of food each month.
