Black Voters Must "Takeover The Polls" This Midterm Election Season

17 May 2018

That is down from 17,667 registered primary voters in 2016 - the year of the last USA presidential run, in which Republican President Donald Trump won over Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in electoral votes nationwide. If one person receives more than half the votes on the first ballot, that candidate wins.

Voters statewide will go to the polls to decide on their parties' candidates for the fall election.

Ballots are due by 8 p.m. Tuesday.

The Special Notice below provides further information.

Republicans also elect delegates to the state party convention.

Anyone may vote in the Democratic primary.

Anyone who didn't vote in the Republican primary can vote in Tuesday's election, or vote early through Friday.

He or she, if previously registered with no party affiliation (undeclared), chooses to vote in a state or presidential primary and then does not change his or her registration back to undeclared. You can find your polling place here if you are unsure.

An unaffiliated voter who votes in a party's primary will remain unaffiliated.

Voter turnout in Whitley County's Primary Election was 26 percent, which is 4,626 voters, in addition to the 1,160 early votes that came in. If they do not, they will be asked to vote provisionally.

Ballots went out to Benton County voters almost three weeks ago, but as of Monday afternoon, only 16,037 had been received from Benton County's 56,581 eligible voters for a turnout of 28.34 percent, according to the Benton County Elections Office.

Voters will need to complete a new registration form if they recently moved or recently changed their name. Call Ada County Elections at 208-287-6860 or Canyon County Elections at 208-454-7562to confirm your polling place. It's still time to open it up, review the material and vote.
