Idaho has determined that we all must vote in this primary election in May by mail-in ballot.

We have been warned by our great President that this is a breading ground for corruption by some individuals that will tip the scales of voting to the Democrats.

Please, please sign and share, share, share!!!!

We the people of Idaho demand to vote at a designated polling locations in our communities.

Not mail-in votes!!!

Just as hospitals, grocery stores and gas stations are essential places that need to stay open during the COVID19 crisis, voting in person is also essential!!!

BOISE, Idaho — The COVID-19 pandemic has had wide-ranging impacts on everyday life for nearly everyone. And elections are no exception.

On Wednesday, Idaho Secretary of State Lawerence Denney held a news conference to discuss the major changes being made for the upcoming state primary on May 19.

The biggest change is that all voters statewide will submit absentee ballots. There will be no in-person voting at the polls. You can request an absentee ballot here or by contacting your local county clerk.

"Given the growing number of coronavirus cases in Idaho, it simply was not safe for voters, election workers or the larger community to hold in-person voting for the May primary," the Secretary of State's Office said in a news release. "Having Idahoans request an absentee ballot and vote at home will protect the health of Idahoans, slow the spread of COVID-19, allow the election to move forward as scheduled and ensure that everyone can still exercise their right to vote."

Voters must request ballots by May 19. Once their ballot arrives at their home, voters simply fill it out and mail it back using the pre-addressed envelope.

"We will be sending an absentee ballot request to every registered voter that has NOT already requested a ballot for May, so if you can't access IdahoVotes.gov, you don't need to worry," Denney said.

Request forms will be sent out within about two weeks, Denney said. Voters are advised to avoid waiting until May 19 to request their ballot or to vote. You can start today, and as soon as you receive your requested ballot, fill it out and mail it back in.

Another change with this election - official results won't be available until June 2.
