Ada County Elections is encouraging voters to check their polling location and preview their ballot before heading to the polls on Election Day, November 2. Voters can confirm their polling location and see their ballot online using the Ada County Elections polling place LOCATOR.
With new legislative changes and district boundaries, voters may not see what they expect on their ballot.
New this year, Boise City Council Elections are split by district, and voters must live within a district to vote. City Council seats 1, 3 & 5 will be up for election.
The Boise Sewer bond question will be on most, but not all Boise City ballots. A small section of Boise City is within the West Boise Sewer District and those voters will not see the Boise Sewer bond question on the ballot.
As with Boise City Council races, West Ada School District Trustees are elected by zone. Only those voters who live in Zones 1 and 3 will see a trustee race on the ballot.
In addition to West Ada Trustees and Boise Sewer bond, there are city council races in all cities, a Garden City mayoral race, Eagle Fire District Commissioners, Kuna School District Trustees, and a West Ada School District Supplemental Levy.
“It’s important to be prepared before heading to the polls on Election Day to avoid surprises and make informed decisions. We have a limited number of polling places changes each election, and though we notify affected voters, it is always a good idea to confirm where you vote before you head out,” said Trent Tripple, Chief Deputy Clerk. “Also, due to the nature of local elections’ districts and boundaries, you may not see what you expect on the ballot based on where you reside. We encourage you to check the polling place locator on our website where you can input your address and see both your polling location and your ballot in advance of the election.”
