Election Day 2012: Large Number of Voters Showing Up at Wrong Precincts


As expected, Election Day 2012 is living up to its promise with a record number of voters showing up at precincts throughout the Treasure Valley.

The good news is the turnout. The bad news is that Ada County is experiencing a larger than normal volume of people heading to the wrong polling locations, according to Ada County Chief Clerk Phil McGrane.

McGrane alerted Boise Weekly and regional media to "please help remind voters to look up where they vote prior to heading out to the polls."

Voters can look up their polling location at adacountyelections.com or they can call 208-287-6860 for assistance.

"With redistricting occurring this past spring many voting districts have changed," said McGrane in a statement. "Ada County redistricted all of its precincts as well. For many voters this is the first time they are voting since redistricting. It will save voters time and frustration if they verify where they vote prior to heading out."
