Three Ways To Vote
Idaho law provides three ways for you to vote. Find the method easiest for you:
1. Vote in Person
You can vote at your polling place on election day the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November. If you are not registered to vote as of election day, you can register to vote at the polling place. Bring proper identification, picture ID, and proof of residence.
2. Vote at Home by Absentee Ballot
You can request that an absentee ballot be mailed to you, and then vote at home. You must already be registered to request an absentee ballot. You can request an absentee ballot from your county elections office. For example, in Bonneville County you can request an absentee ballot in person at the elections office located at 825 Shoup Avenue (across the street from the driver’s license building). You can also request an absentee ballot by mail.
Send your request to the following address:
Bonneville County Elections Office
605 N. Capital Avenue, Idaho Falls, ID 83402.
A copy of the absentee ballot request form is also available on the elections office website. Select “Elections” from the menu on the left side of the website home page screen. Your completed absentee ballot must be returned to your county elections office by mail or in person before 8 pm on election day.
3. Vote Early
You can vote early at your county elections office. In Bonneville County the address is 825 Shoup (across from the driver’s license building), between the hours of 9 am and 4 pm. Early voting in Idaho usually begins in early October. You can register to vote when you vote early if you are not already registered. Bring proper identification, picture ID, and proof of residence such as a utility bill.
