BLAINE COUNTY, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — Election day is less than a week away and Idaho Democrats are mobilizing in an effort to make parts of the Wood River Valley stays blue.

The past weekend Democratic candidates from around Blaine County, and even beyond, teamed up with volunteers to knock on doors and talk to voters about the upcoming election. District 26 State House candidate Rep. Ned Burns said Wood River Valley voters in part are concerned about education, waters issues and abortion rights this election cycle.

District 26 Republican candidates Laurie Lickley, Mike Pohanka, and Jack Nelsen have been making an aggressive push to turn parts of the area red, but Burns said he is not too concerned

“Signs don’t have the ability to vote. Only the voters have the ability to vote. The signs that are out for our opponents are on public right away. They are not on people’s property, which are where all our signs are. Our signs are in supporters’ yards. Where we know we have votes inside those households.” Burns said

The election is on November 8th, which is next Tuesday.
