Complaints made over misleading political mailers

The Idaho Democratic Party has filed a federal lawsuit against the state's most populated county and Secretary of State Lawerence Denney demanding that five polling locations stay open until 10 p.m.


According to the lawsuit, Democratic officials allege that Ada County election staff failed to properly warn voters that a handful of polling places would be changing locations. The party says polls should stay open in case voters need more time to find their new voting sites.


Polling locations close at 8 p.m. in Idaho.


As of 3 p.m., a judge had not weighed in on the request.
