This is it: Last day to vote

Months of television commercials, weeks of campaign mailers and days of street-corner sign waving end today. The election is now out of the hands of the candidates and the consultants, and in the hands of the voters.

In Washington, which has all-mail voting in all counties except Pierce County, today is the day voters must have their ballots postmarked, or placed in a deposit box before 8 p.m. Voters who have misplaced their ballots can get a replacement at a voter service center.

Drop boxes can be found at most public libraries in Spokane County. A full list of drop boxes and voter service centers for Spokane County, and phone numbers for elections offices in surrounding counties, can be found inside the blog.

In Idaho, voters can go to the polls between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. to cast a ballot; under a new state law, all voters must present valid identification before receiving a ballot. A valid driver’s license or state ID card, a U.S. passport, a tribal identification card, a current student ID card issued by a state high school or a college in the state will be accepted.

Those who have been Idaho residents for at least 30 days, but have not yet registered, can register and vote at a polling place with  valid picture identification and a document that contains a valid address in the precinct.

A link to precinct polling stations in Kootenai County can be found here .
