May 19 Primary Election is entirely vote by mail, no polls will be open
There will be no polling places to show up to come the May 19 Primary Election. Voting will be conducted entirely by mail, and Idaho’s secretary of state is asking NFIB-member, small-business owners to help spread the word about the change.
“To participate, business owners will record a video that both address how their business is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and encourages voters to request their absentee ballot from IdahoVotes.GOV,” according to the Business Owners’ Absentee Voting Awareness Program website.
“Due to the effects of the COVID-19 virus, voting in person will not be available in the upcoming elections, limiting voting to ONLY absentee voting for the May 19 Idaho Primary. We are asking for your help to get the word out and also hoping this can be a means of staying in front of your customers while possibly winning some new ones.”
NFIB Idaho State Director encouraged NFIB members to go online and record their own messages about the importance of voting. “You get to do a bit of civic duty and a small bit of advertising for free.”
