Idaho voters reminded to drop May primary ballot request postcards in the mail

daho voters are reminded to simply drop primary ballot request postcards in the mail.

In early May, registered Idaho voters were sent a ballot request form for the upcoming May 19th primary, which will be conducted from home to protect voters, election workers, and community members from the coronavirus.

To request a ballot by mail, voters must open the mailer, tear off the postcard, complete it, sign it, and drop it back in their mailbox. The postcards include pre-paid postage, and are pre-addressed to voters’ county elections office, meaning voters do not need to put the form in an envelope or add any postage.

Those who have already requested their ballot either online or by paper form from their county clerk for the election do not need to send in a second request. The Idaho Secretary of State’s Office mailed more than 550,000 ballot request forms statewide. Voters can also request their ballot online at

Ballots must be returned by June 2nd. (Idaho Secretary of State’s Office)
