Idaho Secretary of State Lawerence Denney announced today that the Idaho State Board of Canvassers (Denney, Idaho State Controller Brandon Woolf, Idaho State Treasurer Ron Crane) have completed the official state canvass for the 2018 general election from November 6, confirming each vote was counted. 

“Every election is important, and I am very proud of how many Idahoans showed up at the polls to make their voices heard,” said Secretary Denney in a release. “I want to thank the thousands of poll workers and all of the county election officials for their hard work in helping this election to run smoothly.”

Of those, 161,830 people participated via absentee or early voting. Counties with the highest voter turnout, as a percentage of registered voters, were Blaine (76.38%), Teton (75.76%), and Valley (75.01%). Official election results , including county-by-county and historical data, will soon be available on the Elections Division page of sos.idaho.gov.
