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. 

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.
