Kuna voters are turning out in force on Election Day.
Ada County Clerk Chris Rich reports two Kuna precincts have run out of ballots and other Kuna precincts are nearly out. The county is making photocopies of ballots and wants to assure voters anyone who is in line at 8 p.m. will get a ballot.
Rich attributes the high voter turnout to the Kuna school levy and gubernatorial candidate Sen. Russ Fulcher, whose district includes Kuna.
The photocopied ballots will take longer to count, Rich said, so Kuna final results may be late.
Tuesday's election has had some other bumps, Rich said, particularly related to changes in how Idaho conducts elections.
The closed primary is stymieing voters and poll workers, Rich said.
"The process is so convoluted. It is very difficult for poll workers and the public to manage," he said.
In one precinct, poll workers turned away a handful of unaffiliated voters who wanted to affiliate on Election Day. Rich said the poll workers were confused by affiliation rules. The county quickly addressed the problem, he said.
Another problem has been voters refusing to show ID and balking at signing an affidavit - another new change in state election rules.
"There's a lot more emotion in this election than what we have had recently," he said.
