Volunteers and election staff in Bannock County are preparing for voters to cast their ballots on Election Day.
Voter turnout has been steady, with more than 7,700 people casting their ballots early in Bannock County, slightly lower than the comparable 2018 mid-term election.
Those who haven’t voted yet will have the chance on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 8. Polls are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Voters can find their polling place by typing their address into Bannock County’s interactive map, available at bannockcounty.us/elections. Voters can also call the elections office at 208-236-7333 for help finding their polling place. Votes cannot be cast at the Elections Office on North 6th Avenue after Friday, Nov. 4.
Voters can still register to vote at the polls on Election Day as long as they are a citizen, 18 years old, and have a valid photo ID and proof of residence. If a voter is already registered to vote, they can sign a personal identification affidavit in lieu of showing a photo ID. Registered voters who recently moved but have not updated their voter registration should bring a piece of mail with their new address.
Completed absentee ballots must be turned in to the Bannock County Election’s Office on North 6th Avenue by 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 8.
Voters can view their sample ballot prior to voting using the interactive polling place map at bannockcounty.us/elections.
Early vote results will be posted after 9 p.m. on Election Day at bannockcounty.us/elections and will be updated throughout the night as precincts report. Final results will be canvassed at the Commissioner’s business meeting the following Tuesday.
“We are so grateful for the help of our volunteer poll workers who dedicate their time and efforts to consistently conduct an honest and transparent election,” said Elections Administrator Julie Hancock.
