Tomorrow is Election Day!


If you've already voted like thousands of other Idahoans, thank you! If you haven't, here are some important things to know before you cast your ballot tomorrow: 

1. Polls are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. 
Remember, Idaho allows for same-day voter registration. So even if you haven't registered to vote yet, you can still cast your ballot on Election Day!

2. Your Polling Location.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many counties have had to change or reduce their number of polling locations. This tool, created by the Idaho Secretary of State,  allows you to look up your polling place based on your residence address.

3. Who and what will be on your ballot. 
Many counties, including Ada County,  have the ability to show you who and what will be on your ballot. Check your County Clerk's website to see if this is available where you live. 
We sincerely hope that you'll take advantage of your ability to vote! For more information on voting, visit www.idahovotes.gov

Let's face it, 2020 has been a heck of a year. That's why now more than ever, it is important to prioritize your health and wellness. 

The next installment of the ITLA Fall Forum on Friday, November 6th will focus on the concrete steps you can take to ensure your mental well-being during the age of COVID. The program will be led by Susan Mauk who is uniquely qualified to speak on these issues with training in the law and a three-decade career in counseling. 

This presentation has been submitted for one ethics credit to the Idaho State Bar. 
 
Susan Mauk was born and raised outside of New York City. She graduated from Vassar College with a major in philosophy, then earned a Masters's degree from Columbia University in history and taught high school juniors and seniors for several years. She returned to school when Antioch School of Law opened in Washington, D.C. where she earned a JD degree and met her husband Bill. She was the 55th woman to be sworn in by the Idaho State Bar. She worked for three-plus years for the Attorney General's Office, first as Assistant AG for the Department of Health and Welfare, then as Deputy AG for the State Board of Education and the Department of Public Instruction. She left the AG's office to go into private practice with a small firm in Boise, and after a few years decided that two attorneys in her family constituted one too many. She left the practice of law, went back to school to get a Masters's degree in Counseling, and began what became a thirty-three-year active counseling practice. In addition to her counseling practice, she was a Supreme Court approved mediator and parenting coordinator for several years. Susan has served on several non-profit boards over the years including the ACLU of Idaho, the Idaho Theatre for Youth, the Coalition for Advocates for the disabled (COAD), the Idaho Women's Charitable Foundation, Boise Contemporary Theatre, and the Lawyers Assistance Program of the State Bar. Susan and Bill have been married for 45 years; they have two sons and three grandchildren. She retired from her counseling practice in 2018.
