Boise, Idaho – This year, National Voter Registration Day will be observed Tuesday, Sept. 25, and Secretary Denney is encouraging all eligible Idahoans to register to vote in preparation for the General Election taking place Tuesday, Nov. 6.

“Citizen engagement and voter participation is an essential component of the democratic process,” said Secretary Denney. “I want every eligible voter to have the opportunity to cast a ballot and help decide the future of our cities, our state, and our country.”

National Voter Registration Day is also a great reminder for every voter to verify their registration information is up to date. This is especially important for voters who have moved, changed their name, or would like to change political party affiliation.

Online Voter Registration. Idahoans can easily register to vote or update their information online by visiting the Online Voter Registration page of

Register by Mail. Voters can also register by mail. Simply visit and print an Idaho Voter Registration Form. Voters should mail completed forms to their local county clerk’s office. Mailing addresses for each county clerk are listed on the County Clerks page of

System Upgrade In Progress

Campaign Finance, Lobbyist Reporting, and Online Voter Tools are expected to be offline from April 9th at 5:00 p.m. MDT, through April 12th at 8:00 a.m. MDT to complete a system upgrade.

Per Idaho Code 67-6607, campaign finance is reported monthly during a campaign’s election year. The deadline for the March report falls on Saturday, April 10th. Due to the interruption caused by this upgrade, political treasurers will be allowed to file the March report until 11:59 p.m. MDT on Monday, April 12th.

While we do our best to ensure compliance with all deadlines in statute, the timing of this release is critical to ensure minimal (or no) impact to the May election cycle. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
