ADA COUNTY, Idaho -- Idaho's first closed primary starts Monday with early voting in Ada County.
The primary, which also promises to be a complex one, is asking voters to select a party affiliation before they are able to vote. Once a voter chooses a party (Democrat, Constitution, Libertarian, Republican or unaffiliated), they will select their ballot. Democrat, Constitution and Libertarian Party members will be able to vote on the Democrat or Nonpartisan ballot. Republicans will be able to vote the Democrat, Nonpartisan or Republican ballot.
Those selecting the Nonpartisan ballot will only vote for three unopposed judges. If you'd like to vote for a partisan race, such as those for the Idaho Legislature, Congress or County, you will need to select either a Democrat or Republican ballot. Your choice can't be changed once it's made.
Early voting takes place from Monday to May 11. Voters will need photo identification as they go to the early polling place at 400 N Benjamin Lane, Suite 100, Boise. It is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
