In-Person Early Primary Voting Tops 1,200 in Ada County, But Twice That Number Have Mailed in Ballots

Posted By on Sun, May 11, 2014 at 9:00 AM

A little more than 1,200 Ada County residents have participated in early primary voting thus far.

Boise Weekly visited the Ada County Board of Elections on North Benjamin Lane Saturday to see that, by 2 p.m., 86 voters had taken advantage of a special Saturday session of early voting.

That was in addition to 1,114 early voters who had cast ballots up to Friday, May 9, but more than twice that number have mailed in absentee ballots to Ada County officials: As of Thursday, May 8, 2,550 absentee ballots have been received at the North Benjamin Lane offices. More than 6,400 requested absentee ballots have been mailed out to Ada County citizens.

Ada County early voting will continue one more week—Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. at the county elections office on North Benjamin Lane.

Voters will be asked to provide identification, but citizens are reminded that absent any photo ID, they'll also be available to sign an affidavit in order to cast a ballot.

Primary day is Tuesday, May 20, when Idahoans will be selecting those men and women who will represent their political parties to run for the Idaho House and Senate, and each of the statewide constitutional officers, including governor, secretary of state and superintendent of public instruction. Also on the ballot this year are numerous county posts, the U.S. Senate seat currently held by GOP Sen. Jim Risch and the U.S. House seats currently held by GOP Reps. Raul Labrador and Mike Simpson.
