STORY AND PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK

Chances are you’ve already voted, given that more than half of Blaine County residents have already mailed in ballots or voted early.

Passions about the 2020 presidential election have run high, even in the Wood River Valley.

Republicans have massed on Trump Hill this past week, waving Trump flags at commuters entering and leaving Ketchum.

And Ketchum resident Gary Hoffman not only traveled to Washington, D.C., but to Kentucky to persuade voters for Vice President Joe Biden. Hoffman then returned home to drive around a large Trumpkin sign with the words, “Orange on the outside, hollow on the inside and needs to be thrown out in November!”

U.S. Astronaut Kate Rubins already cast her ballot from the International Space Station 250 miles above earth, voting while floating in an opportunity that started during the Civil War to ensure soldiers could vote. An 89-year-old California man signed off on a mail-in ballot while strapped to a gurney being transferred between hospital facilities. And when one family was forced to flee wildfire in Colorado, the first thing they grabbed to take with them was their mail-in ballots.

If you’re among those who have yet to cast your vote, you can do so from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. today—Tuesday, Nov. 3.

Be sure you have some form of photo identification, such as driver’s license, passport, concealed weapons permit or student photo ID. If you do not have a photo ID, you may sign a personal identification affidavit swearing to your identity before voting.

North Blaine County—Wood River Community YMCA

Sun Valley—Sun Valley City Hall

North and South Ketchum—The Community Library
