Absentee ballots going out soon for March 9 election

A Boundary County School District 101 Maintenance & Operations levy will be the first item to be voted on in 2021 by local voters, with the election to be held March 9, and absentee ballots for those requesting them will start being mailed next week.

“Each year the State of Idaho indicates that if you wish to receive an absentee ballot you need to apply,” Boundary County Clerk Glenda Poston said. “With that being said we will only be sending out ballots to those that have requested that for 2021.”
