Public Notice: Post-Election Audit Draw


NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN, that the Idaho Secretary of State will be selecting counties and precincts for the Post-Election Audit on Tuesday, May 24th at 7:00PM (Mountain Standard Time).

Senate Bill 1274, signed into law by the Governor this past session, created a post-election audit after each primary and general election. The counties will be chosen by random ball draw weighted proportionally to their population after which precincts from within those counties will be selected. The audit will take place on-site during the three days immediately following the draw.

This event will be streamed live from the Lincoln Auditorium in the Idaho Capitol by Idaho Public Television. The public and the press are welcome to attend.

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.
