There was lots of testimony this morning on the big election consolidation bill, HB 201, but the Senate State Affairs Committee ran out of time and had to end its meeting before finishing the hearing, so there was no vote today. The committee next meets on Friday. The measure earlier passed the House; it'd make sweeping reforms in Idaho's election system, to move all elections to four dates and have counties run them all, with standardized polling places.
