It isn't a massive, sweeping change-- but voter registration may require less information now in Idaho. That is, if you choose to withhold the information.

A proposal introduced to the Idaho legislature just this week suggests that Idaho Voters, when registering, shouldn't need to disclose their sex.

As it stands right now, if an Idaho resident goes to register to vote, the following information is required:

  • Full legal name as shown on a Drivers License
  • Sex
  • Current address
  • Date of Birth
  • The last four of a social security number, or their drivers license number.

Idaho is bordered by states that do not require sex to be disclosed when registering to vote. These include Oregon, Montana, Nevada, Washington and Nevada.

Some law makers think that Idaho should just add a new category rather than not require an answer. Others don't support the change for various reasons, including the lack of voter statistics that could be measured.
