The Canyon County Elections Office announced today that it will open 21 polling locations for voters to cast their ballots on Election Day.
“This is truly a credit to our community, who responded in force this week to our call for more poll workers,” said Clerk Chris Yamamoto. “Their willingness to serve and help with the election will allow us to quadruple the number of polling locations that we had initially planned to open on Election Day.”
The 21 polling locations that will be open on Election Day are precinct-specific, meaning that voters will need to go to their designated polling location in order to cast their ballot.

“The support from our community will also allow us to open five times as many early voting locations than we ever have in the past,” added Clerk Yamamoto. “We’ve always done early voting out of one location, our Elections Office, so going to five is a big expansion of the early voting process in Canyon County. When you add in the fact that any registered voter can vote at any of the five early voting locations, it’s a big win for voters.”
In-person early voting will be available to registered voters at the following locations:
- O’Connor Field House – S 22nd Ave, Caldwell, ID 83605
- Celebration Church – 2121 Caldwell Blvd, Nampa, ID 83651
- Oregon Trail Church of God – 23057 Old Hwy 30, Caldwell, ID 83607
- Melba Valley Senior Center – 115 Base Line Rd, Melba, ID 83641
- Notus Old Gym – 25260 Notus Rd, Notus, ID 83656
Four of the in-person early voting locations open on October 19 as required by State statute, with the Caldwell location at O’Connor Field House opening a week earlier on October 13. The last day to vote early is Friday, October 30. Early voting hours are Monday through Friday, from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm (excluding holidays).
Voters are encouraged to preregister to vote ahead of the October 9 deadline by visiting idahovotes.gov or in-person at the Canyon County Elections Office, located at 1102 E Chicago St in Caldwell. Voters can also use idahovotes.gov to request an absentee ballot and check on the status of their absentee ballot request.
Absentee ballots must be returned to the Elections Office by 8:00 pm on Election Day. Absentee ballots returned after 8:00 pm on November 3 will not be counted.
