May Primary Election on track to have largest voter turnout in Idaho history

Based off of the number of statewide ballot requests, the 2020 May Primary Election is on track to have the largest voter turnout of any non-gubernatorial primary election in Idaho history, with the largest absentee request ever recorded.

In total, just over 415,500 Idahoans had requested ballots. This represents almost 46% of the registered voters statewide.

While this number is not yet a “turnout” number, as ballots are not due back to county clerks until 8pm on June 2, it does represent an unprecedented response.

Ballots will be counted and unofficial election results will begin to be released the evening of June 2nd.
