No Worries of ACORN
As far as voter registration, Scott says there are no worries about ACORN. The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now has fallen under scrutiny from the FBI for alleged voter fraud in several states.
Idaho relaxed its absentee voting rules some years ago. Before that time, Idaho voters had to be away from the county in order to cast an absentee ballot, Scott said.
The deadline to request an absentee ballot via mail is 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 29. After that, voters must present themselves at the clerk's office and request one. Such ballots must be voted on before leaving the office.
