Early Voting

Ada County provides voters with opportunities to cast their ballot before Election Day, either by voting during the early voting period or requesting an absentee ballot and voting by mail. This allows voters to participate in the election process, even if they are not present during Election Day.

Early Voting

In Ada County, ahead of each election, we have several early voting locations. Voters may choose to cast their ballot at any of the available locations, regardless of where they live in the county. Early voting locations typically open 15 to 22-days prior to the election and close four-days before the election.
