In order to keep communities safe amid the growing coronavirus pandemic and protect citizens’ right to vote, Idahoans will vote in the May Primary Election from home. If you want to vote in the upcoming election, you will need to request your ballot at IdahoVotes.gov.
Here are the three steps you need to take to vote in the May Primary Election:
1. Request Your Ballot.
You must request your ballot by May 19, 2020 in order to vote. You can request your ballot online through the Secretary of State’s Office at IdahoVotes.gov. You can also contact the Madison County Elections for help at 208-359-6244. You can also pick up a ballot request and registration form in the front entry of the Administration Building in a box to the left of the door.
Please note, you will need to be registered to vote to participate in the upcoming election. You can register online at IdahoVotes.gov.
2. Wait for Your Ballot.
Once you’ve requested your ballot, give Madison County Elections some time to process your request and drop your ballot in the mail. It may take up to 10 days for you to receive your ballot once you’ve submitted your request.
You can track your ballot, and confirm your ballot request has been received, at IdahoVotes.gov.
3. Vote and Return Your Ballot.
As soon as you receive your ballot, vote and use the pre-addressed envelope to mail it back to Madison County Elections.
All ballots must be received by 8 p.m. on June 2, 2020 to be counted. Voters are encouraged to send their ballots back to us as soon as possible.
If you would rather drop your voted ballot off, Madison County Elections will have a drop off box at the main doors of the Administration Building, 134 E. Main in Rexburg.
You can help protect the health of all Idahoans and slow the spread of COVID-19 by voting from home. If you have any questions about the May Primary Election contact Madison County Elections for help at 208-359-6244.

Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people themselves and the only way they could do this is by not voting.
