Voter’s guide: Where, when and how to vote
Published at | Updated at
IDAHO FALLS — With the 2020 general election Tuesday, time is quickly winding down to make your voice heard.
Idaho voters had until Oct. 23 to request an absentee ballot from their county clerk’s office. Early voting ended Oct. 30 and local counties are gearing up for in-person voting with several polling places.
Polling locations will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., which is the deadline to get your ballot turned in.
To register to vote, you need to have a valid photo ID and show proof of your current residence. This can be done by showing mail that’s dated on or before Oct. 3 to show proof of 30 days at your address or you can also provide your driver’s license.
