BOISE, Idaho — Several election-related bills are now being considered at the Idaho Statehouse.

The Secretary of State's office introduced SB 1274 Friday that would allow for regular post-election audits.

Idaho Deputy Secretary of State Chad Houck said audits of the 2020 election show results were accurate, but Idaho is one of seven states without a procedure in legislation for regular audits.

Bills introduced Monday work to prevent ballot harvesting and promote election integrity.
