CANYON COUNTY, Idaho — The Canyon County Elections Office mailed out the final round of absentee ballots for the May Primary Election. 12,084 ballots were mailed in this round and all ballots need to be returned to the Elections Office by 8 p.m. on June 2.

“We estimate it takes about one week for voters to receive their ballots in the mail,” said Clerk Chris Yamamoto. “So for those in this last round, there probably isn’t going to be enough time for them to vote their ballots and return them to us in the mail. I would recommend instead that voters drop their voted ballots in the mail slot at our Elections Office. It’s available 24/7, and it’s a way to ensure your ballot gets in before the deadline.”

For the May Primary Election, the Elections Office received a total of 43,325 absentee ballot requests. As of today, approximately 14,000 of those ballots have been returned and received.

The Canyon County Elections Office is located at 1102 E Chicago St in Caldwell.
