If the first week of early voting in Ada County is any indication, you may want to consider casting your ballot sooner than later. Of the 212,000 registered voters in Ada County—and that number is expected to grow with new registrations—election officials are predicting a voter turnout as high as 75 percent to 80 percent.
Early voting will be available weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Ada County Board of Elections, 400 N. Benjamin Lane in Boise.
The 2010 Census and this year's redistricting process have resulted in shifting many Idaho voters into new precincts, so Ada County is mailing all registered voters a notification of where to vote on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 6.
Additionally, Ada County has revamped its website to further assist voters.
Voters are reminded that they should try to bring photo identification to register and/or vote, but voters also have the option to sign an affidavit if a photo ID is not available.
