VOTERS GUIDE

The purpose of the Voters Guide is:

  • Provide voters with comprehensive, nonpartisan information about the contests on their ballot in an easy-to-use presentation.
  • Provide a means for candidates to publish information about themselves and their candidacy directly to voters.

 

Photo ID is now required to vote in Idaho. If a voter is not able to show a required photo ID, the voter will be given the option to sign the Personal Identity Affadavit. Please click here for more details.
