New Registration Requirements

House Bill No. 340 was passed during Idaho’s 2023 legislative session. Due to this change, starting July 1st, 2023, new voter registrations will need to provide one of the approved proofs of residence documents to complete the voter registration process. If your address does not match the record on your driver’s license, you may still begin the registration process online; however, your application will not be complete. You will not be able to request an absentee ballot or vote before you either update your driver’s license or provide one of the approved documents to your county elections office or at the polls. Click the link for approved photo IDs and residence documents

If requested, the Clerk will furnish a list of registered voters in the county, arranged by precinct. The requester may be assessed a charge to compensate the county for the cost of reproducing such a list. It is prohibited by law to use this list for commercial purposes.

For additional election information, see the Vote Idaho website.

Idaho election process information and security is detailed in this video.
