Phil McGrane – Elections in Idaho

Phil McGrane is a 4th generation Idahoan who loves this great state. His happy, honest approach to public service earned him the opportunity to serve as Idaho’s 28th Secretary of State. Over his career, Phil has definitively earned the title of an “Elections Junkie.” His career began in Ada County as an Elections Specialist, where he trained poll workers and counted chads, when we still voted on punch cards. As chief deputy and Ada County Clerk, he enjoyed sharing elections insights and analytics aimed at making elections and government more accessible and transparent. Phil’s various efforts in public service have been recognized and celebrated by TIME, Best Places to Work in Idaho, Accomplished Under 40, TEDxBoise, Fast Company, and even Food & Wine magazine, which featured his “food truck” voting concept.
