Strong turnout predicted Tuesday

Looking ahead to Tuesday's election, Idaho Secretary of State Ben Ysursa is predicting strong voter turnout for a non-presidential year election, with 63 to 64 percent of registered voters casting ballots, "which would be our highest non-presidential year turnout since '94."
 
"Candidates and issues make turnout," Ysursa said, "and I think we've got competitive races out there that are driving the turnout."     Among the many decisions awaiting Idaho voters are whether to keep or replace the state's governor and members of Congress, four state constitutional amendments, races for an array of county and statewide offices, and votes on every seat in the state Legislature. There's more information on all of those in our online Voter Guide here; and there's info for voters on the state's voter information site here.
