BOISE-- Idaho's May school board elections are only a week fromTuesday, and officials say early voting has gotten off to a slow start. The elections will take place on May 21.
Here in Ada County, early voting was off to a slow start onSaturday.
Chief Deputy Clerk Phil McGrane says that's because those whose taxing district doesn't include anything on the ballot essentially have nothing to vote for.
Someone showed up today, early on Saturday, to come in to vote, McGrane told KTVB. They came in to vote, signed up, signed the poll work and everything, got their ballot, and once they saw what the contents of the ballot were, they decided it wasn't interesting enough to vote on. So, they turned the ballot back over to us. They decided it wasn't worth it, after all.
The Ada County Elections Office is located on Benjamin Lane and will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday for early voting.
Also, seven school districts in the Western part of the valley are asking for levies or bonds.
