Ada County voters will have two additional early voting locations this year, one in Meridian and one in Downtown Boise.
“Improvements in voting technology have enabled us to make voting both more secure and more convenient,” Ada County Chief Deputy Clerk Phil McGrane said Thursday. “This is a great opportunity to encourage our community to take advantage of the new sites and get out and vote.”
Voters from any part of Ada County may vote at any of the three early voting locations from Monday, Oct. 19 through Friday, Oct. 30:
• Meridian City Hall, 33 E. Broadway Ave.
• Ada County Indigent Services Building, 252 E. Front St., Suite 199, east of the courthouse. Free parking is available.
• Ada County Elections Office, 400 Benjamin Lane, near Boise Towne Square.
Early voting takes place 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. On Saturday, Oct. 24, early voting will be offered from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Benjamin Lane site.
“Our hope is that with efforts like these, we can begin to reverse the trend of declining voter participation,” Ada County Clerk Chris Rich said.
Canyon County early voting is 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays through Oct. 30 at the Canyon County Elections Office, 1102 E. Chicago St. in Caldwell.
Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 3. City offices, levies, bonds, recall elections and special questions are on this fall’s ballot.
