The Secretary of State invites both amateur and professional photographers to submit photos taken within the state of Idaho for display on this website.

    1. Idaho Travel: Idaho locales or activities.


    1. Idahoans: Only portraits and photos of groups or individuals that convey a sense of Idaho will be used


    1. The Idaho Experience: Events, objects, or activities connecting Idahoans to their history or their cultural heritage; photographs that tell us what it means to be an Idahoan and provide a sense of what it is like to live in this state.


How Will My Photos Be Used?

By sharing your photos with the Secretary of State, you are giving this office an unlimited license to use your photos, but you will keep the copyright. Your photos may be shared on the Secretary of State website or used in Secretary of State brochures, posters, blogs, social media, videos, or other documents created for this office.

As a statewide organization, it is important for the Secretary of State to represent people from throughout Idaho. Your submissions will help build a library of photos that will help enrich Secretary of State content.

How Do I Submit My Photos?

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.
