Ahead of 2022 mid-terms, Idaho voters encouraged to become educated

January 22, 2022

As we approach an election cycle that's quite possibly the most mistrusted in the history of the United States, Idaho Secretary of State Lawerence Denney  joins fellow members of the National Association of Secretaries of State in the #TrustedInfo2022 education effort to encourage citizens to look to their state and local election officials as the trusted sources of election information. This year's mid-term general election takes place May 17, the primary November 8.

The filing period for candidates in the general election is February 28 to March 11. Offices on the Boundary County ballot will include the U.S. Senate seat held by Mike Crapo, the U.S. House seat held by Russ Fulcher, Idaho governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, secretary of state, treasurer, controller and superintendent of public instruction.

“As we prepare for the upcoming 2022 election season, it’s important for our citizens to reach out to their local, county and state election officials for all information regarding elections including registration, polling locations, absentee ballots, key dates, getting official election results and more," Denney said. "I want to emphasize that Idaho election officials are your trusted source for election information and resources.”

The nation’s chief election officials, along with local election officials, are continuously working to inform Americans about the elections process, including voter registration, state election laws, polling place locations, post-election processes and much more.

Secretary Denney’s office has valuable information, resources and accessible tools for those interested in learning more about elections at VoteIdaho.gov. If you have questions or see incorrect election information, please contact his office at (208) 334-2852.

In addition to supporting #TrustedInfo2022, Secretary Denney’s office is preparing for 2022 by:
  • Developing the Idaho Voter Education Video series, giving Idaho voters in-depth information on all aspects of the election process. The series is available at https://voteidaho.gov/votereducation.
  • Investing in our collective cybersecurity posture, preparedness, and awareness
  • Partnering with many of Idaho State agencies and departments to safeguard the integrity of our elections

Idaho citizens can also become more involved in the elections process by becoming a poll worker. You can learn more at voteidaho.gov/poll-workers/.
