Rock the Vote: Idaho in Top Third for Young Voters


A recent Rock the Vote survey ranked Idaho in the top third for a state’s treatment of young voters. The survey evaluated registration accessibility, absentee balloting and distribution of election information.

Rock the Vote indicates Idaho’s strong point is same-day voter registration, "particularly appealing to procrastinating potential voters." The Gem State missed points with its requirement for photo ID in order to vote.

The Voting System Scorecard landed Idaho in 18th place, tied with Minnesota. Idaho could score more points by creating online registration and improving new-voter education. Washington state ranked No. 1, scoring high with online registration. Virginia and South Carolina tied for the worst voting systems in the country, according to Rock the Vote.
