Rep. Dennis Lake, R-Blackfoot, urges a House committee to enact major legislation consolidating all of Idaho’s elections to two specific May and November dates, plus two more in March and August for school bonds and levies. The intent is to increase voter turnout and eliminate voter confusion; currently, various jurisdictions and districts run their own elections, sometimes with different polling places voters must visit on the same day.
