(Boise, Idaho) – Idaho Secretary of State Phil McGrane is encouraging Idahoans to vote tomorrow on Election Day, November 7th. Voting is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Voters may check their polling location at VoteIdaho.gov.

Voters planning to vote absentee must return completed ballots to county election offices or official drop boxes by 8 p.m. on Election Day. Absentee ballots should not be sent by mail, as they will not arrive in time to be counted. As of late Monday afternoon, 67% of absentee ballots issued statewide have been returned, leaving 15,926 absentee ballots outstanding. See https://sos.idaho.gov/dashboards/absentee-tracking/ for the latest absentee information.

“Idahoans, your vote matters. Before you head to the polls, take a moment to be prepared. Check your polling location and preview the races and measures up for election in your county,” said Idaho Secretary of State Phil McGrane.

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.
