Idaho doesn’t have much in the way of fossil fuels. It does have abundant hydropower, and it’s being affected by drought and wildfire as much as any other Western state. So why are its leaders so afraid to say the words “climate change”? Most Democratic candidates say they value public lands, but that’s as far as they’ll go. Meanwhile, they plead for civility (but not the right to vote) in a state being torn apart by a feud between two wings of the Republican party: the far right wing and the extremely far, far right conspiracy theory/ MAGA/ Q-Anon-believing fringe. Check back when Idaho practices democracy.

Voting rules and how to vote:

If you plan to vote using an absentee ballot, your application must be received by 5:00pm on Friday, October 28. Learn more about mail in and early voting here.

Idaho allows you to register to vote or update your voter registration anytime up to or on election day, Nov 8. But rules vary by county so check your status online and find out what you’ll need to bring with you.

More voting rules and regulations are available from the Secretary of state’s office – remember your polling place or district may have changed this year!
