Idaho Votes In Person is a community-organized message that is all about supporting voter participation efforts. Whether you can vote by mail or in-person we want you to vote. If you have the option of either, we encourage all Idahoans to vote in-person where you get to meet your neighbors, thank a poll-worker, ensure your ballot has the shortest chain of custody and is as secure as possible.
