Election Results certified by Board of Canvassers

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI)—The Idaho Secretary of State and the Board of Canvassers will ratify the results of last month's primary elections in Idaho Falls on Wednesday, June 5.


According to Idaho law, the Board of Canvassers ensures that every election has been handled correctly and that the results are what the clerks and counties say they are.

This year they are holding the canvassing of results in at the Mountain America Center.

"I think it's really important that we get outside of Boise and do events like these here for people in eastern Idaho just as much as any other part of the state," Phil McGrane the Idaho secretary of state said.

The process will be streamed live through Zoom starting at 11:15 a.m. to 12 p.m.

McGrane also says that the goal of the proceedings was to make the process of ratifying the results of an election as transparent as possible.

"Our office sent out teams of auditors to go through and hand count the results. And each of these precincts to make sure they match with the results reported on election night.This really is to bolster voter confidence when people go to vote and to improve our elections process across the state of Idaho. And I think the work today really highlighted that," McGrane said.

Fremont County, Madison County, and Bannock County along with five other counties participated in the election audit.

Thanks to the ratification process McGrane said that it proves that Idaho's Elections work and we have a great system for it here in Idaho.
