Today October 31, 2016 is an historic day for the Ada County Clerk's office. It's the first day early voters surpassed the number of mail-in voters at this point in an election.

"We put a lot of work into making voting possible," said Phil McGrane, the Chief Deputy of the Ada County Clerk's office, "and so we're thrilled do see so many people lined up and taking advantage of the opportunities we give them."

Early voting will be wrapping up operations this Friday, November 4, 2016.  Election Day is Tuesday November 8, 2016.

The mobile van is now permanently parked at 8th and Bannock until then, but here's the full schedule for the early voting centers.
