Quick Tips for Voters

  • Check your voter registration status. 
  • Locate your polling place and note the hours of operation. 
  • Consider voting early or by absentee, if possible. 
  • If you plan to vote at the polls, go early in the day to avoid the last-minute rush. 
  • If you are in line, stay in line until you have casted your vote. 
  • If you choose to use photo identification, make sure it’s one of Idaho’s accepted forms of I.D. 
  • You can sign the Personal Identification Affidavit if you choose not to show an I.D. 
  • Read all instructions on your ballot carefully. 
  • Take your time.
