The 2020 election was definitely one of the most historic in recent history, and while we can move past the day itself, some are wondering what happens to the ballots in Idaho. We talk to an Idaho election expert about the process of retaining election ballots. Next, we discuss the new COVID-19 restrictions in our neighboring states Utah and Oregon. How do these restrictions differ from the Gem State? Finally, were you ready for the snow? Some of Idaho's fur babies were, so we put together an adorable video of them soaking in the snow!

The 2020 election has caused concerns of voter fraud to come into the spotlight, but how possible is committing voter fraud in Idaho? We ask an election expert about precautions the Gem State takes to ensure all elections are free of fraudulent activity. Steering away from the stress of 2020, we revisit a group of local artists who are commemorating social justice activists with their talent. Inspiration Alley in downtown Boise serves as a mural for those who have impacted the world. We're also bringing back Feel Good Friday after a long, stressful week!

Idaho Gov. Brad Little recently announced that the state was moving back to Stage 3 of the reopening plan. That means no large events, including at sports venues in Ada County. So why are officials allowing Boise State to welcome more than a thousand fans for Friday night's game against BYU? Central District Health explains the decision-making process. Also, social media sites have had their hands full, tagging and flagging false claims when it comes to the Nov. 3 election. So we decided to help out a bit, and take a closer look at an Idaho legislator's questionable post. And, adding insult to an already-long election season, campaign signs are still out on our roadways, reminding us that at least one election is far from over. But they won't be around for long - at least they're not supposed to be.

While we await results in the hotly-contested presidential race, it's another story entirely in Idaho, where almost all races have been called. But there were some close ones, including a race in Ada County that came down to just two votes. That raises questions about the recount procedures, and what happens next. So what about the Idaho Statehouse? We break down the changes coming to Idaho's Capitol. And, a New Plymouth family voted together for the first time, but it wasn't just because it was easier to all jump in the same car.

Leaving their home states for Idaho, some new residents say they are searching for not only a better way of life, but to live somewhere that aligns with their political views. We're taking a look at the trend known as "political migration." Also, technology isn't always an accurate science. So how can you double-check that your absentee ballot has been counted? Plus, no matter the year, it's the same message: get out and vote. Today's 208 Redial takes us back to 1998 when John Miller hit the polls.

Idaho medical leaders say we are in the midst of a critical situation when it comes to hospital capacity and that crisis care standards could soon become a reality as COVID-19 cases continue to surge throughout the state. We spoke with frontline health care workers - including a St. Luke's respiratory therapist - to find out what is really happening inside the hospital. Also, the departure of a coffee shop from the Boise State campus turned into a dramatic controversy this week. And it culminated with hundreds of people gathering outside Big City Coffee's downtown Boise location on Friday.
