Print Article

COEUR d'ALENE - The Kootenai County Clerk's office announced Tuesday that in-person absentee voting for the May 21 election will start May 6 and continue through May 17.

Residents can cast an absentee ballot at the county Elections office at 1808 N. Third St. in Coeur d'Alene.

The office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Depending on where voters live within the county, the ballot can include:

* Board members for Alpine Meadows Water and Sewer district

* Levies for Kellogg Joint and Plummer-Worley Joint school districts

* Trustees for selected zones in Coeur d'Alene, Lakeland, and Post Falls school districts

* Trustees for Kootenai Hospital district

According to County Clerk Cliff Hayes, voters county-wide are eligible to vote for hospital trustees. Only voters registered within school or water district boundaries are eligible to vote on those ballot measures.

Currently registered voters should bring a photo ID, or may sign a Personal Identity Affidavit.

New registrants, or those who have moved or changed names, must bring a photo ID and a document, such as a utility bill or vehicle registration, that has been sent to them at their current residence.

The proof of residency document must be dated at least 30 days prior to their voting date. Voters with questions about their proof of residency documents should call the Elections office at 446-1030.

Kootenai County is mailing absentee ballots with return postage pre-paid. Voters who want a ballot mailed to them can call for a ballot at the number above, or click on this link to download the Absentee Ballot Request: Application.pdf

Absentee ballots can be returned to the elections office by mail, fax, or email.
