Residents can register to vote at polls Tuesday

Sunday, May 25, 2008

Residents interested in voting in the primary election Tuesday can register Tuesday at the polls.

Unregistered voters will need to present a photo ID and proof of residency for the last 30 days.

Vivian Garcia, Elmore County's elections deputy, said a driver license printed before April 27 would meet the photo ID requirement.

A pay statement, power bill or other document printed before April 27 showing your current residence also will work to satisfy the residency requirement, she said.

There are 17 voting precincts in Elmore County. To see which site corresponds with your address, visit

  • I voted today and am proud to be free to do so without the government telling me how to vote. Thanks to everyone who has fought for my freedom to do so.

    The elections people were very freindly and voting was fast.

    I am proud to be a voting resident of precinct 9.
