The fight over an open seat on the Idaho Supreme Court is expected to be the top competitive race in the state.

Twin Falls attorney Robyn Brody and Republican Sen. Curt McKenzie are in a runoff election for the little known-judicial position — this is the first runoff election for an Idaho Supreme Court seat since 1998.

The fight over the seat has taken center stage as Republicans are expected to dominate in Tuesday's election. GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump is expected to win Idaho's four electoral votes, and all three Republican congressional candidates will likely secure their bids for re-election.

Brody has ranked high among her fellow attorneys, which has resulted in large campaign donations from firms across the state.

McKenzie has won the endorsements of Idaho Chooses Life, an anti-abortion organization, and the National Rifle Association, which are favorable among Idaho's strong conservative voting base.

The two candidates are in a runoff election after failing to get a majority of the vote in a four-way race in the May primary. The last time there was a runoff election for an Idaho Supreme Court seat was in 1998.

There is only one statewide constitutional amendment on this year's November ballot and it's a familiar one.

Two years ago, Idaho voters said no to amend the state constitution to allow lawmakers veto power over administrative rules submitted by the executive branch. Convinced the amendment's failure was due to uninformed voters, legislative leaders have launched an expensive new campaign this year urging the public to vote yes.

Nothing will change if the amendment fails or passes. Nearly 25 years ago, the Idaho Supreme Court ruled that Idaho's legislative veto power is legal. That ruling has never been challenged and Idaho lawmakers have been using legislative vetoes ever since.

However, Idaho lawmakers say they fear that that ruling could be challenged and so they want that permission expressly enshrined in the Idaho Constitution.

On the legislative level, all seats of the 105-member Idaho Legislature are on ballots.

But 37 of those incumbents are Republican incumbents without opponents because they survived the May primary election.

The toughest race is in northern Idaho as House Minority Leader John Rusche hopes to hold onto to his District 6 seat.
