November 3, 2020 Election

All polling locations will be open election day from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm at your usual polling locations.

Early voting is now open in our County Administration building located at 1500 HWY 2 in the lobby.  Early voting hours are 9am to 5pm weekdays through Friday, October 30th. Please feel free to vote in-person during these times. If you requested your absentee ballot and have not yet returned it, you can bring that in as well and either drop it off in the absentee ballot box, OR have one of our poll workers spoil it and issue you a new one to vote right then! By issuing you a new one your old one will be electronically voided in our system.

You can also bring your absentee ballot to your polling place on election day and deposit it in the ballot box (make sure it is in the white affidavit envelope and signed), OR have the poll worker spoil it and issue you a ballot to vote there in your polling place if that is what you prefer. Again, upon issuing you a new ballot, your old ballot will be electronically voided.

I encourage everyone to vote, and if possible please vote early here at our county office, even if you’ve been issued an absentee ballot but haven’t returned it yet.

I also want to remind everyone that wearing political hats, shirts, jackets, etc., can be deemed electioneering…as are large flags, car signs, etc., within 100 feet. This is a federal crime. Please show civility and for that short part of your day leave your endorsement gear at home or in the car.

We are neighbors, family, friends, coworkers, teammates and so much more. Let’s show the world how amazing North Idaho is, especially Bonner County and be super civil to each other.
