Election Equipment Tested, Early Voting Ends Today

Posted By on Fri, May 13, 2011 at 8:43 AM

Early voting ends today at the Ada County Elections office on Benjamin Lane. Officials confirmed an extremely low early voter turnout—though Wednesday nearly 100 ballots were cast—in the run up to the Tuesday, May 17, election.

Election Specialist Rich Kaylor told Citydesk that his colleagues will be counting eight variations of a ballot on Tuesday night, including unique combinations of school levies and trustee runoffs in the Meridian, Kuna and Melba school districts, in addition to the Greater Boise Auditorium District board election in which two will be chosen from six candidates.

Only one Ada County election district, No. 121 near Micron in Southeast Boise, will have no election Tuesday. The Boise neighborhood does not fall inside the GBAD district. Following accuracy testing at the elections headquarters, ballot tabulators and software were "locked down" until ballots are ready to be counted next Tuesday.
