PAC mails out inaccurate Kootenai County voter information | News
From the Kootenai County Clerk:
Kootenai County Chief Deputy Clerk Pat Raffee announced that a mailer sent by the Idaho Prosperity Fund, featuring Idaho House District 3B candidate Greg Gfeller, contains inaccurate information.
“No ballot can remain secret sent via fax, and the Elections department will not accept ballots cast via fax,” said Raffee. “Elections can accept faxed absentee ballot requests, which are very different documents than actual ballots,” she continued.
“The deadline for absentee ballot requests is 5PM Wednesday, May 14”, Raffee noted, pointing out a different date stated in the mailer. Finally, Kootenai County pays return postage on absentee ballots, a fact also misstated in the mailer.
Voters who have any questions about ballots for the May 20 Primary should contact the Elections office at 446-1030.
