BOISE, Idaho — September 24 is National Voter Registration Day. To celebrate, Ada County Elections will be offering voter registration to Ada County residents in downtown Boise.

Ada County Elections, in cooperation with the wider community, encourages everyone to register to vote. Online voter registration in Idaho now makes it quick and easy to register. “We encourage everyone to take a moment to register to vote or update your registration information online ahead of the November Election. Registering online saves time at the polls on Election Day,” said Ada County Clerk, Phil McGrane.

You can visit the Idaho Votes website to check your voter registration or register to vote online.

As a nonpartisan unofficial national holiday, National Voter Registration Day is designed to create an annual moment when the entire nation focuses on registering Americans to exercise their most basic right – the right to vote.
