General Voting Information:

The passage of the 2009 Idaho Consolidated Election laws changed city elections.  One of the goals of this law was to reduce the confusion of "where to go" for particular elections.  Since November 2011, Blaine County has handled the logistical voting for all City of Hailey elections.

For details about upcoming elections please see Blaine County's Elections page.
