(BLACKFOOT) – The city of Blackfoot is changing the way it elects city council members. From now on, when more than two candidates are running for city council, the person with the most votes will win. A previous ordinance required a super-majority of fifty percent plus one. Local News 8 reports that the new law will only apply to city council elections, and the super-majority will remain in effect for mayoral elections. The changes take effect at the end of January.
