Rognstad to run for Idaho governor as write-in candidate

Sandpoint Mayor Shelby Rognstad has announced he will run as a Democrat write-in candidate for Idaho governor in the May primary election.

The former Lewiston resident made the decision after the Idaho Secretary of State’s office determined he could not run as a Democrat because he had previously registered as a Republican.

Rognstad filed his declaration of candidacy paperwork on the day of the filing period deadline, March 11th, but failed to change his voter registration from Republican to Democrat.

The deadline for a Declaration of Intent as a write-in candidate is 5 p.m. Friday.
