SENATE BILL 1078
VOTERS – Amends and adds to existing law to provide for a voters’ guide with candidate information to be prepared by the Secretary of State.
RS30097 / S1078
This legislation requires the Secretary of State's Office to prepare a comprehensive voters' guide for primary and general elections, to be distributed to every household in Idaho. Currently, the Secretary of State's Office produces and distributes a voters' pamphlet when a ballot contains a constitutional amendment pursuant to Idaho Code Section 67-453, or an initiative or referendum measure pursuant to Idaho Code Section 34-1812C. This legislation expands this resource by also including information about candidates for federal and state offices, as well as other election information, including voter registration and voting requirements, important dates, and county clerk contact information.
