Early In Person Voting
It’s a tossup what is going to happen for the general election here in Lemhi County. As of today regular voting at your local polling place on election day is still on. That could change at any time.
Early voting seems like a smart choice.
Voting early must be done at the Lemhi County Courthouse. Early voting is usually an easy process with short or no lines. However, if everyone in the county suddenly shows up to vote, one by one, at the courthouse it could change dramatically.
Wear a mask when entering the Courthouse.
Contingency plan: It would be wise to plan several days for your early voting. Start early on Oct 19th. If the lines are long please leave and come back at another time. Keep coming back until you can safely get in to vote.
Absentee Mail In Voting
Mail in Voting seems like a good choice as well, except you can’t be sure your ballot will get there in time. Make sure you take advantage of all the early dates and don’t wait until the end.
