  • Judy Ouderkirk: Once a Save Hulls Gulch leader, Elaine has done an outstanding job on Council to preserve open space

    I support and will vote for Elaine Clegg for Boise City Council. She is a trustworthy citizen and has done an outstanding job during her tenure on the Council–especially to preserve open space, our neighborhoods and clean water, three areas of deep concern to me.


    Elaine Clegg was one of the primary leaders, along with Anne Hausrath and me, in the effort to Save Hulls Gulch. I worked closely with her from March 1989 through 1993 and know well her interest in and care about preserving our Boise foothills. She designed the “Save Hulls Gulch” logo that appeared on flyers, brochures, bumper stickers and the ever-popular yard signs. She was there from the beginning and played a major role in that effort. 

     Elaine Clegg is a skilled and experienced public servant who gives many hours of time and energy every day to make our city the best it can be. I urge you to vote onTuesday, Nov. 3, for Elaine Clegg, and keep one of our best Boise City Council members.                                                                                          —Judy Ouderkirk


  • Ada County Experiencing Delays with Mail out Ballots

    Ada County Elections

    (Boise, ID) – Ada County Elections is experiencing unexpected delays in the delivery of absentee ballots mailed to voters. As a result, Ada County urges voters who have recently requested an absentee ballot, but have not yet received one, to vote at one of the three early voting locations or at their local polling place on Election Day.

    Changes in the processing of mailed absentee ballots have resulted in an increase in the length of time it takes for a ballot to reach voters. Ada County is working with the U.S. Postal Service to look into the delays and resolve any issues. However, with the November 3rd election less than a week away, Ada County wants to ensure that voters do not miss an opportunity to cast their ballot and is therefore encouraging use of early or Election Day voting.

    Ada County Early Voting Locations: (Open 8am – 5pm thru Friday Oct 30th)

    Meridian City Hall – 33 E Broadway Ave, Meridian, ID 83642

    Ada County Indigent Services Building – 252 E Front St, Suite 199, Boise, ID 83702

    (East of the Ada County Courthouse, between Avenue A and Broadway, free parking available)

    Ada County Elections – 400 Benjamin Ln, Suite 100, Boise, ID 83704

    Any voter who has not mailed back a voted ballot may vote at any one of the early voting locations this week or at their regular polling place on Election Day. Voters with absentee ballots are encouraged not to wait and to return their absentee ballots as soon as possible. Absentee ballots may be returned by mail or by dropping their voted ballot off at any of the early voting locations. All absentee ballots must be received at the elections office by 8pm on Election Day, Nov. 3rd
