Advances in Voter Registration Modernization
- Online Voter Registration: Idaho launched online voter registration through the Secretary of State’s office in 2017. Eligible citizens with a state driver’s license or non-driver ID can use the system to register to vote and update their registration information.
- Election Day Registration: Idaho implemented Election Day registration in 1994. Individuals may register and vote at the polls on Election Day or at their absent elector’s polling place during the early voting period.
- Electronic Pollbooks: Idaho authorizes the use of e-pollbooks at the county level.
Gains from Voter Registration Modernization in Idaho
- In the November 2016 general election, 131,455 voters registered on Election Day or during the early voting period.
