Election Day is just around the corner.
Make sure your voice is counted by voting early or voting absentee.
register to vote
Make sure you are registered to vote, or update your registration. You may need to update your registration if you have recently moved or changed your name.
You can still fill out a paper voter registration form, which can be accessed here and then mailed to your country clerk.
And if you don't know who your county clerk is, you can find that out here.
The DEADLINE to pre-register to vote is October 9th. If you are turning in your registration in person, it must be in your county clerk's hands by 5:00 PM. If you are registering online, you have until 11:59 PM. If you are mailing in your form, it must be postmarked October 9th.
request your absentee ballot
Vote from the comfort of your own home by requesting an absentee ballot and voting by mail.
If you'd like to print out your absentee ballot request and mail it in, you can access that here.
Recently, during the Idaho Legislative Special Session, a bill was passed that shortens the amount of time you can request an absentee ballot. The NEW deadline for requesting an absentee ballot is, we believe, October 4th, but are in the process of confirming that information.
If you'd like to vote in person still, but early to ensure you don't have to wait in long lines on election day, you have the option for early in-person voting, typically at your county clerk's office.
Vote on election day
We know that voting in person is something that is very special and sacred to many folks. If you plan to vote in person on Election Day, November 3rd, make a plan!
Plan to Vote
Confirm Your Polling Location
What time are you voting? (i.e. before or after work, during your lunch break or afternoon walk?)
How are you getting there? (Bus, bike, walk, car?)
And make sure to be safe!
Wear a Mask!
If you can, take a pocket hand sanitizer with you.
Maintain social distancing as much as possible.
And in case of longer lines than usual, wear comfortable shoes and warm clothes, inc case the line extends outside.
