Your vote stops here

COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho (AP) — The Kootenai County clerk says city halls in the county aren’t secure enough to house absentee ballots so anyone wanting to cast such a ballot early and in person in future elections will have to do so at the Kootenai County Elections Office in Coeur d’Alene.

Cliff Hayes also says it’s too expensive to provide staff to work at the absentee polling sites. The Coeur d’Alene Press reports in a story published Sunday that it will be the first time in decades that several Kootenai County municipalities won’t have their city halls open for early ballot voting.

Some Post Falls and Coeur d’Alene officials are unhappy with the change, noting it will make voting more difficult.

Good idea or bad idea?
