Completed official campaigning for the 2022 general election
Boise, Idaho- Idaho Secretary of State Lawerence Denney, along with the other members of the Idaho State Board of Acquirers, Idaho State Controller Brandon Woolf and Idaho State Treasurer Julie Ellsworth, conducted and certified official state campaign advertising for the 2022 general election. Voting is the official accounting of every ballot cast to ensure every valid vote is counted correctly.
“State and county election officials and workers are to be commended for their dedication and objectivity in conducting another successful election in Idaho,” said Secretary Denney. “Other states could learn a lot about clean, fair, and accurate elections by looking to Idaho.”
The statement of ballot certified by the Board today shows that 595,602 Idahoans voted in the 2022 general election — a turnout of 56.8% of Idaho’s 1,048,263 registered voters. Voters cast 190,258 early or absentee ballots, representing 31.9% of all ballots cast. Counties with the highest turnout, measured as a percentage of registered voters, were Camas (69.0%), Boundary (67.4%), Adams (67.1%), and Idaho (66.3%). Official election results, including district-by-district and historical data, will be available shortly on the Elections Division page of sos.idaho.gov.
