Frequently Asked Questions

VOTER REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS
The following requirements must be met to register to vote in Idaho.

You must register before voting.

HOW TO REGISTER
You may register or obtain mail-in registration cards at the Kootenai Elections Office, at any city clerk’s office*, or at the Department of Motor Vehicles offices in Coeur d’Alene or Post Falls.

Idaho now offers online voter registration. If you do not wish to enroll online, a downloadable registration form is also available.

The online registration deadline is 24 days before an election. Mail-in forms must be post marked 25 days before an election.

LATE REGISTRATION
If you are not registered prior to an election, you can still vote on election day with Proper Photo Identification and dated proof of residence such as a utility bill. The bill must show your current household address.

You can also register while completing a same-day absentee vote at the Kootenai Elections Office.

SAME DAY ABSENTEE VOTING
​Same-Day Absentee Voting is like Vote by Mail. However, instead of mailing in your ballot, you vote early in-person at the Kootenai Elections Office. Same-Day Absentee Voting is available for a limited time prior to election day. Check the Elections Office Website for further details.
VOTE BY MAIL
​Vote by Mail is the same as voting by Absentee Ballot. It is a convenient way to vote on your own schedule rather than waiting for election day. It is also convenient if you prefer to complete your ballot at home to avoid the health risk of voting in person. To request an Absentee Ballot, you must complete the online Absentee Ballot Request process. As an alternative, you can download an Absentee Ballot Request form and mail it in. Once you have filled it out, be sure to return it to the Kootenai Elections office well in advance of Election Day. If necessary, you can skip the postal service and drop your ballot at the Elections Office.
ELECTION DAY VOTING
If you reside in Kootenai County year-round and your schedule permits, you have the option to vote on election day at your designated polling place. You can use this online tool to Find Your Polling Place.

Remember to bring a Valid Photo ID and proof of residency with your current address listed, dated at least 30 days prior to the current voting date.

To vote Without Valid Photo ID you must sign a Personal Identity Affidavit.
