Voter registration is now available online in Idaho.
Secretary of State Lawrence Denney unveiled a new voter registration web portal today during a press conference in Boise.
“Today, our vision becomes a reality,” Denney said, in a press release. “Idahoans can now register to vote, online, wherever they are. Combining this new Online Voter Registration functionality, the all new look of the Idaho Votes site, and all of the thought that went into this, this is a big day.”
Idahoans can use IdahoVotes.gov to search for their polling location, see if they are currently registered, or check on an absentee ballot.
Now, with an Idaho Driver’s License or State Issued ID Card, they can also register to vote or update an existing registration.
To accommodate the different voting calendars of counties, the site recognizes when a potential registration is beyond the registration deadline and prompts the user to print the registration and take it with them to the polls.
