The Canyon County Board of Commissioners adopted a resolution on April 9 establishing 45 polling locations for the upcoming May 21 election, as proposed by Clerk Rick Hogaboam and the Election Office. In the prior primary election in 2022, there were 21 polling locations. In addition to the established locations for election day, the Canyon County Election Office has secured two locations for in-person, early voting. Early voting is available from May 6 to May 17, Monday to Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., at both the Hispanic Cultural Center (315 Stampede Dr., Nampa) and Caldwell Elks Lodge (1015 N. Kimball Ave., Caldwell). Any qualified elector in Canyon County may vote at either early voting location.

In addition to the options of in-person voting on election day or early in-person voting at one of the two locations, qualified electors may also request an absentee ballot online at The deadline to request an absentee ballot is 5:00 p.m. on May 10. Absentee ballots must be returned to the Canyon County Elections Office no later than 8:00 p.m. on May 21.

Voter registration confirmation. Voters can check their voter registration status at The public can still register to vote on election day with valid proof of identification and address verification, but keep in mind that only registered voters may request an absentee ballot. The preregistration deadline is April 26 to register to vote online.

Election worker information. The Canyon County Election Office is still processing interested parties wishing to assist as poll workers. While the office may fill the required slots with the existing applicant pool, interested parties are being added to an on-call list as potential reservists. Interested parties should visit

Voter look-up tool. The Canyon County Election website,, has helpful resources and information, including a lookup tool to identify your particular precinct. It is being worked on to provide this updated voting location information, but you can identify your voting location by finding your precinct and referencing the attached list of voting locations for all precincts throughout the county. Sample ballots will also be added to the website shortly. Stay tuned for continued updates as election day draws nearer.

Clerk Hogaboam credits the collective efforts of the Election Office and community interest for securing all of these locations: “Kudos to our team and to fine folks of Canyon County for stepping up, big time. Securing 45 locations from partnering venues is one thing, but this isn’t possible without the additional interest of hundreds of members in our community willing to work on election day. The level of interest from prospective poll workers is extremely encouraging. This collective effort will help shorten average commutes, as well as relieve lines, over the alternative of combining more voters into fewer locations. Many thanks to the Caldwell Elks Lodge and Hispanic Cultural Center for their willingness to allow for two weeks of continuous use for early voting. We stand ready to serve with absentee requests, early voting, and on election day.”
