Ada County's Mobile Voting Center brings early voting option to residents ahead of the November 8th election.

Early voting ahead of next month’s election begins Monday across Idaho as residents consider their options in city and county races.

Voters can cast their ballots, depending on their county, at their local courthouse or other temporary locations.

Ada County Clerk Trent Tripple said there will be four permanent locations open over the next two weeks, along with a voting tour at several libraries in the area.

“We will have the mobile voting unit at Lake Hazel Library, Star Library, Garden City Library, the Library! At Bown Crossing and Kuna Library throughout that time period from [Oct. 23-Nov. 3],” Tripple said.

Canyon County residents can vote at the clerk’s office in Caldwell, as well as the Hispanic Cultural Center in Nampa.

Those who aren’t yet registered to vote can do so at the polls, but you must bring a state-issued ID, tribal ID or a U.S. passport, along with a proof of address, like a mortgage or lease agreement.

Early voting ends Nov. 3, with Election Day set for Nov. 7.
