BOISE, Idaho — Friday, Oct. 9, is the last day Idahoans can register to vote online before the Nov. 3 presidential election. After Friday, registration can be completed during early voting or on Election Day.
This deadline is very important for absentee voters. Absentee ballots can be requested until Oct. 23 but only if you are registered or have updated your voter registration by Oct. 9.
You can register to vote online and request your absentee ballot at Idahovotes.gov. You can also track the status of your absentee ballot and find your polling place here.
"We encourage potential voters to register to vote as soon possible, whether you choose to vote absentee, early voting or on Election Day at the polls," Ada County Clerk Phil McGrane said. "Existing voters should check their registration and make sure their information is up-to-date. Taking care of this ahead of Election Day helps you save time at the polls and makes the process go more smoothly for everyone."
Once you're registered to vote or you've decided to register at the polls on Election Day, there is still a mountain of important information to know before casting your vote, and KTVB is here to help.
