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 IdahoVotes.gov.

Register by Mail. Voters can also register by mail. Simply visit IdahoVotes.gov 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 IdahoVotes.gov.

Register to Vote in Person. Voters can register in person by visiting their local county clerk’s office.

In addition, Idaho offers same-day voter registration which allows any qualified Idaho resident to register and vote on Election Day. However, voters can save time at the polls by registering early. For more information on how to register in Idaho and learn about pre-registration deadlines, please visit IdahoVotes.gov today.
